OBJECT Procedure-related rupture during endovascular therapy of intracranial aneurysms is associated with a mortality rate of more than one third. Previously ruptured aneurysms are a known risk factor for procedure-related rupture. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether very small, ruptured aneurysms are associated with more frequent intraprocedural ruptures. METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study in which the investigators examined consecutive ruptured aneurysms treated… CONTINUE READING
