Abstract

Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a potentially lethal disease with high morbidity and mortality. The goal of endovascular intracranial aneurysm treatment of intracranial aneurysms is the prevention of rebleeding after primary SAH, the prevention of SAH in unruptured aneurysms or the alleviation of other symptoms attributable to the aneurysm. Securing ruptured aneurysms improves outcome after SAH, and there is high level evidence that endovascular coiling of ruptured aneurysms offers lower morbidity and mortality than neurosurgical clipping. However, the natural history and treatment of unruptured aneurysms is controversial. Endovascular techniques can be classified into deconstructive arteri..
