Delayed Thromboembolism After Balloon-Assisted Coiling

  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 44-year-old lady presented with subarachnoid haemorrhage (Hunt and Hess grade II, Fischer-I). MRA (not shown) followed by DSA (Fig. 50.1a) revealed two aneurysms in the left ICA in the ophthalmic segment. The ophthalmic artery was arising from the base of the proximal one. Balloon-assisted coiling was considered to be the most appropriate management strategy.
