A 54-year-old lady presented with headache. MRI revealed an incidental para-ophthalmic ICA aneurysm. DSA revealed a small broad-neck para-ophthalmic ICA aneurysm. The ophthalmic artery was noted arising from the base of the sac (Fig. 18.1a). Owing to the broad-neck stent-assisted coiling was planned.
