Middle Cerebral Artery Bifurcation Aneurysm: Wide-Necked Middle Cerebral Artery Bifurcation Aneurysm, Treated with the Woven EndoBridge (WEB), Assisted by pCONUS1_HPC
We report on a 63-year-old female patient with an incidentally detected complex aneurysm of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA) bifurcation. The aneurysm was treated with endosaccular flow disruption using a Woven EndoBridge (WEB; MicroVention) supported by a pCONUS1 (phenox) bifurcation stent with hydrophilic coating, to stabilize the WEB. The combined use of the WEB and pCONUS1 is the main topic of this chapter.
