This study evaluated the outcomes of endovascular management for P2-segment aneurysms. From 2003 to 2008, 14 consecutive patients with P2 aneurysms were treated endovascularly by proximal P2 segment occlusion at our institution. The aneurysms included 12 P2a and two P2p aneurysms. Presenting symptoms were caused by subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in six patients, stroke in five, and isolated headaches in three. Mean follow-up was 14 months. Twelve aneurysms were treated with proximal P2 segment occlusion without parent artery revascularization. Twelve aneurysms were at the P2a and two aneurysms at the P2p. Two patients developed hemianopsia after the procedure and one recovered completely within six months follow-up with one still persistent at 22-month follow-up. Proximal parent vessel occlusion was a relatively safe, effective treatment for P2 aneurysms that posed low risk for early or delayed ischemia or infarction.
