Until 1988, difficult aneurysms of the proximal internal carotid artery (ICA), particularly those located within the cavernous sinus (CS), were treated in our department by combined occlusion of the internal carotid artery and extra-intracranial bypass surgery. However, due to further improvements of interventional neuroradiological techniques, the management of patients with these lesions has since been changed.
