abstract

  • Stent-assisted coil embolization is an option for treatment of ruptured wide neck ruptured aneurysms and for salvage treatment during unassisted embolization of ruptured aneurysms but complications and retreatment rates are higher than for routine clipping or coiling of cerebral aneurysms. Pretreatment with clopidogrel appears effective in reducing thrombotic complications without significant increasing risk of hemorrhagic complications.
