Background and purpose Treatment of intracranial fusiform aneurysms is complex and controversial, and is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. The goal of this study was to evaluate the strategy of stent only therapy. Materials and methods A retrospective analysis of 20 patients with 20 intracranial fusiform aneurysms undergoing endovascular treatment using stent only therapy was undertaken. Feasibility, safety, and angiographic follow-up were evaluated. Results 28 Leo Plus stents… 

Treatment of ruptured blood blister-like aneurysms with flow diverter SILK stents

Implantation of flow diverter stents seems to be a safe and feasible alternative for treatment of ruptured BBAs in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhages caused by rupture of BBAs.

Stent-Assisted Coiling of Ruptured and Incidental Aneurysms of the Intracranial Circulation Using Moderately Flow-Redirecting, Braided Leo Stents—Initial Experience in 39 Patients

Interventional treatment of intracranial aneurysms using flow-redirecting stent-assisted coiling using low profile self-expandable stents is demonstrated to be technically feasible and highly effective inAneurysmal occlusion.

Stent-Assisted Coiling Using Leo+ Baby Stent

The results confirm that stent-assisted coiling with the Leo+ Baby stent is safe and efficient for treatment of wide neck or recurrent cerebral aneurysms and the theory of considerable flow-modulating effects of Leo+Baby is supported.

Flow-Diversion Effect of LEO Stents: Aneurysm Occlusion and Flow Remodeling of Covered Side Branches and Perforators

The rate of flow remodeling on the covered arteries and perforators was 9% and 4%, respectively, and was clinically irrelevant in all cases, stressing the flow-diversion properties of LEO stents.

Leo stent for endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms: very long-term results in 50 patients with 52 aneurysms and literature review

The Leo stent is safe and effective for treatment of wide-necked saccular IAs and very long-term results show high rates of adequate and stable occlusion.

Early Rupture of a Giant Basilar Artery Aneurysm after LEO Stenting: Case Report and Review of the Literature

A case report highlighting the clinical course and autopsy findings of a fatal SAH shortly after stenting this giant basilar artery aneurysm adds to the few previously reported fatal cases of IA rupture after endovascular treatment.

Braided stents assisted coiling for endovascular management of posterior cerebral artery aneurysms: a preliminary mid-term experience

Braided stent-assisted coiling with a high occlusion rate and relatively low complication rate provides an alternative strategy in treating PCA aneurysms and needs further randomized study with larger case numbers.

The safety and efficacy of using large woven stents to treat vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia

Deployment of woven stents with or without supportive coiling may offer symptom relief and reconstruction in patients with VBD.



Combined endovascular treatment of dissecting vertebral artery aneurysms by using stents and coils.

At present this combined approach represents a reliable and safe alternative for the treatment of VA dissecting aneurysms, especially in patients who cannot tolerate occlusion tests.

The Pipeline Embolization Device for the Intracranial Treatment of Aneurysms Trial

Intracranial aneurysm treatment with the PED is technically feasible and can be achieved with a safety profile analogous to that reported for stent-supported coil embolization, as presented in the first prospective multicenter trial of a flow-diverting construct for the treatment of intracranialAneurysms.

Stent-Assisted Reconstructive Endovascular Repair of Cranial Fusiform Atherosclerotic and Dissecting Aneurysms: Long-Term Clinical and Angiographic Follow-Up

Stent-assisted coil embolization is an attractive option for ruptured and nonruptured fusiform aneurysms with stable long-term outcome, however, recanalization observed up to 3 years after the initial obliteration emphasizes the need for long- term follow-up angiography.

Use of the sole stenting technique for the management of aneurysms in the posterior circulation in a prospective series of 20 patients.

Use of SS for aneurysms in the posterior circulation complex is a safe and effective technique, demonstrating an occlusion rate of 80% at the 1-year follow up.

Clinical and Angiographic Follow-Up of Stent-Only Therapy for Acute Intracranial Vertebrobasilar Dissecting Aneurysms

In this small series of studies, stent-only therapy was safe and effective in the treatment of VBDAs that were not deemed suitable for treatment with parent-artery occlusion.

Endovascular Reconstruction with the Neuroform Stent as Monotherapy for the Treatment of Uncoilable Intradural Pseudoaneurysms

Endovascular Neuroform stent reconstruction represents an optimal strategy for the management of intradural pseudoaneurysms that require a constructive treatment strategy and are too small to accommodate the introduction of embolization coils.

Stent-supported coil embolization: the treatment of fusiform and wide-neck aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms.

Stent-supported coil embolization represents an emerging therapeutic alternative to surgery for the treatment of symptomatic or enlarging wide-neck and fusiform aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms of the cervical and vertebrobasilar arteries, which are not amenable to conventional unsupported coil emblization.

The Role of the Pipeline Embolization Device for the Treatment of Dissecting Intracranial Aneurysms

Reconstructive endovascular treatment of intracranial dissecting aneurysms with the PED provided good clinical and angiographic results with acceptable risks, representing an attractive therapeutic option for this complex disease, especially when parent vessel preservation is mandatory.

Very Late Thrombosis of a Pipeline Embolization Device Construct: Case Report

The very late (>1 year) thrombosis of a PED construct placed for the treatment of a left vertebral aneurysm is reported, highlighting the need for a continued, careful systematic evaluation and close long-term follow-up of treated patients.

Stent-Assisted Coiling of Intracranial Aneurysms: Clinical and Angiographic Results in 216 Consecutive Aneurysms

Stent-assisted coiling was associated with a significant decrease of angiographic recurrences, but they were associated with more lethal complications compared with coiling without stents.
