Abstract

We report the usefulness of Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC) embolization by direct carotid puncture for anterior circulation aneurysms. For all 27 patients, GDC embolization by direct carotid puncture was safely performed by using a 5F sheath introducer 5 cm long and a Tracker-38 catheter. Neurologic deficits and hemorrhage were not found in any patient during the follow-up period. If the transfemoral approach cannot be applied, GDC embolization should be considered as an alternative method.
