abstract

  • Our results suggest that the thromboembolic event rate associated with Neuroform stent use is low in unruptured aneurysms. In ruptured aneurysms, the complication rate is high, possibly partly related to restricted use of antiplatelet therapy. Stent size and hypertension may be associated with the risk of stroke, but additional studies are needed to confirm their significance.
