Intracranial Bifurcation Aneurysm

Bifurcation aneurysms were defined as lesions originating from major bifurcations, including the anterior cerebral artery (ACA), anterior communicating artery (ACoA), posterior communicating artery (PCoA), internal carotid artery (ICA), middle cerebral artery (MCA), and top of the basilar artery (TOBA)

see Internal carotid artery bifurcation aneurysm.

Wide-neck intracranial aneurysm in the bifurcation remains a challenge for endovascular surgeons.

Dual stent-assisted coil embolization techniques have been defined to treat bifurcation aneurysms with a complex neck morphology. However, there are still concerns about the safety of dual-stenting procedures. Stent plus balloon-assisted coiling is a recently described endovascular technique that enables the coiling of wide-necked complex bifurcation aneurysms by implanting only a single stent.
