The authors concluded that, although the significant difference between coiling and neurosurgical clipping of ruptured intracranial aneurysms in terms of death and severe disability after 1 year has vanished (primary endpoint), coiling should still be favored over neurosurgical clipping because mortality rates significantly favored coiling.
