Abstract

The evolution of intravascular embolization techniques during the last 20 years has offered a new approach in the therapy of large intracranial aneurysms [1–8]. Improvements in microcatheter and microballoon technology, steerable microguidewires, and high-resolution digital subtraction angiography with road-mapping capability allow access to nearly all cerebrovascular territories.
