Aneurysm Embolization in Patient with Tortuous Aorta
A 68-year-old female presented with sudden onset right third nerve palsy. MRI revealed a right internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysm. DSA revealed a lobulated broad-neck ICA aneurysm (Fig. 2.1a). The patient had congenital kyphoscoliosis with excessive tortuosity of the aorta (Fig. 2.1b, c). The management plan was to perform a stent-assisted coil embolization.
