Cerebral Aneurysm with Tortuous Access: Distal Access Catheter Placement Using Coaxial Technique
A 56-year-old lady presented with a sudden onset of headache and loss of consciousness. Plain CT brain scan on admission revealed diffuse SAH with intraventricular extension. Cerebral angiography revealed a saccular wide-neck paraclinoid aneurysm of left ICA measuring 4.2 × 3.6 mm. Left ICA was tortuous with a loop in the cervical segment. Balloon-assisted coiling was planned.
