Coil embolization is the most common endovascular treatment for cerebral aneurysms at many centers . Nevertheless, the coiling of wide-neck aneurysms is a challenge. Incomplete filling of the aneurysmal sac due to coil configuration challenges and aneurysmal growth can often lead to recurrence. To assist treatment with coils, clinicians may deploy a high porosity stent in a staged process to act as a supporting bridge for coils. The stent is first deployed across the aneurysmal neck, and multiple coils are then deployed into the aneurysmal sac 6–8 weeks later . Under certain circumstances, coil deployment is not possible and high porosity stents alone are used for treatment [2–3].
