Both acute and delayed visual disturbances can present after the endovascular treatment of carotid artery paraophthalmic aneurysms. Delayed visual deterioration can be observed up to 35 days after embolization. Although the cause is still undefined, it is likely that the more delayed visual deterioration can be attributed to progression of mass effect and/or perianeurysmal inflammatory change. Our case series raises the possibility that this phenomenon may be more likely with HydroCoil (HydroCoil Embolic System; MicroVention, Aliso Viejo, CA). This possibility should be taken into account by neurointerventionists when selecting a coil type to treat large paraophthalmic aneurysms.
