  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 54-year-old male presented with sudden severe headache. CT scan revealed Fisher grade III SAH. He was clinically well preserved (Hunt and Hess grade II). DSA with 3D imaging revealed a large broad neck aneurysm with both anterior cerebral arteries from the base of the aneurysm (Fig. 43.1a, b). The plan was to do a balloon-assisted coiling.
