Abstract

Some cerebrovascular lesions cannot be treated definitively by conventional means despite all advanced neurosurgical and anesthesiological techniques. Especially large or giant intracerebral aneurysms have a badly defined neck, and the size and location often impede anatomical intraoperative orientation and definitive clip placement.
