Coil embolization has become a widely accepted endovascular procedure for intracranial aneurysms, as an alternative to surgical clipping [1,2]. This procedure involves treating an aneurysm from the inside out, whereby metallic coils are placed into the aneurysm to induce thrombosis of the lumen and eliminate the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Successful endosaccular packing mainly depends on the morphological features and size of the aneurysm, and the relationship of the aneurysm to the cerebral arteries.
