Dissecting Aneurysm of MCA: Stent-Assisted Coiling

  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 54-year-old hypertensive female presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage (Fisher grade III). She was clinically well preserved (Hunt and Hess grade II). DSA revealed a fusiform aneurysm at left MCA bifurcation. The aneurysm was extending into the lower division, which showed fusiform dilatation. A small lobule was projecting laterally from the aneurysm (Fig. 16.1a, b).
