Among the numerous methods of treatment of saccular arterial cerebral aneurysms particular attention has been recently focused on intravascular intervention using detachable balloon catheters. The last decade was marked by active development, perfection and successful practical application of this technique (Serbinenko 1971, 1974 a, b; Zubkov 1974, 1979; Romodanov et al. 1975, 1979 a, b; Debrun et al. 1975, 1978; Zozulia, Shcheglov 1976; Shcheglov 1976, 1979; Lazarev, Lysachev 1978; Laitinen et al. 1978; DiTullio et al. 1978; Taki et al. 1979).
