Advancement in endovascular operative techniques has facilitated treatment of wide range of intracranial aneurysms. Stent-assisted coiling is one of the minimally invasive technique in the treatment of a wide-necked intracranial aneurysm.
Their topics include how to repair the intracranial aneurysm: clipping or coiling decision making, subtemporal and pretemporal approaches for basilar and posterior cerebral artery aneurysms, the microsurgical treatment of previously endovascularly treated aneurysms, tentorial and posterior fossa dural arteriovenous fistulas, and minimally invasive approaches for spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage.
More than 90% of patients with cerebral aneurysm can be treated by interventional embolization and suggest favorable response.14 The clinical prognosis of patients with intracranial aneurysm rupture who undergo intravascular interventional treatment was significantly superior to that of patients who undergo microsurgical craniotomy clipping.15 But the treatment opportunity of interventional embolization is controversial.
