  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 48-year-old female presented with subarachnoid haemorrhage due to rupture of a giant ICA bifurcation aneurysm. Angiography revealed a giant broad-neck aneurysm involving origins of both middle and anterior cerebral arteries (Fig. 14.1a–c). The case was planned for balloon-assisted coiling.
