OBJECTIVE: One of the most important technical problems in surgery to repair aneurysms is the presence of a hard/calcified neck. In this situation, various techniques can be used for proper clipping. In addition to well-known techniques, we have used a different technique for more than 10 years. This technique probably also has been used by other neurosurgeons, but we could not find any publications about it in the English literature. Therefore, we would like to report the details of this technique and our own experience.
