Stent-Assisted Coiling of Dissecting Aneurysm of Posterior Cerebral Artery

  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 54-year-old lady presented with headache. CT head revealed subarachnoid haemorrhage in the basal cisterns. DSA revealed a small broad-neck aneurysm of left posterior cerebral artery (PCA). Adjacent arterial segment was irregular and slightly attenuated (Fig. 17.1a). These features suggested dissection of parent artery. Stent-assisted coiling was planned.
