Endovascular treatment of ruptured intracranial aneurysms with detachable coils has proven a favorable alternative to surgical clipping. However, coiling has limitations in the treatment of complex or broad neck aneurysms because of possible coil prolapse or coil migration into the parent vessel and long-term angiographic recurrences. To achieve reconstruction of intracranial vessels with preservation of the parent artery, the use of stents has the greatest potential for assisted coil embolization. Three-dimensional coils and reconstructive techniques such as balloon-assisted remodeling may overcome these problems. But these methods had some drawbacks. The Neuroform stent is the most recently developed endovascular stent with self-expandable and micro-delivery properties that are specially designed for the treatment of unruptured intracranial broad neck aneurysms. Aim of the following working is to report a single center experience of stent-assisted coiling on ruptured intracranial aneurysms with assessment of its efficacy and safety, and follow-up findings.
