We describe our early successful experience with Guglielmi Electrically Detachable Coils (GDC) and electrothrombosis in treating a surgically inaccessible wide-necked intracranial aneurysm in a Chinese patient. The precautions taken to prevent unnecessary complications while performing this technique was also described. It provides a serious alternative to other less ideal types of embolising agents and direct surgery in treating patients with these difficult-to-treat aneurysms.
