Among posterior circulation aneurysms, basilar tip aneurysm is the most difficult to treat. Because of their deep location in front of the brainstem and their intimate relationship to perforating vessels, morbidity and mortality rates associated with direct exposure used to be daunting. Complex intracranial aneurysms are not uncommonly encountered in cerebrovascular practice. Often their complexity can render standard treatment either impossible or exceedingly hazardous. Although endovascular therapy is an available alternative to surgical clipping, it is not without risks. The Neuroform stent represents a significant advance in the endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. The Y-configured reconstruction method of the Neuroform stent may represent a variable therapeutic option especially in the case of terminal type including bifurcation aneurysms. We report the results of our experience in two small basilar tip aneurysms using stent-assisted coiling.
