Delayed Self-expansion Phenomenon as a Complication of Neuroform Stent Assisted Coiling for Ruptured Intracranial Aneurysm

Abstract

Use of stent assisted coiling of intracranial aneurysms has shown a recent increase. Despite technical improvement and accumulated clinical experiences, due to insufficient study data, debate over short and long term durability and associated complication has continued.To the best of our knowledge, this case report, for the first time, demonstrates delayed self-expansion phenomenon occurring as an acute and unpredictable complication of Neuroform stent assisted coiling for treatment of a ruptured intracranial aneurysm.
