Özet

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We present our preliminary experience, including mid-term angiographic and clinical follow-up results, with an alternative technique for the endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms in a series of patients. This new method, previously described in anecdotal case reports, consists of endovascular deployment of an artificial vessel graft (stent graft or covered stent) in the parent vessel to exclude the intracranial aneurysm sac from circulation.
