Treatment of wide-neck basilar tip aneurysms using the Web II device

Neuroradiol J. 2013 Dec;26(6):669-77. doi: 10.1177/197140091302600610. Epub 2013 Dec 18.


Endovascular treatment has assumed a major role in the management of intracranial aneurysms. Although current techniques have proven extremely effective in the embolization of a large number of intracranial aneurysms, wide-necked basilar tip aneurysms represent a subset that continues to pose technical challenges in treatment. This study reports our experience with WEB II, a new embolization device employed in four patients with this type of aneurysm.
