OBJECTIVE: Deployment of a Neuroform microstent (NFM) within acutely angled geometry may result in substantial deformations. This in vitro study was conducted to validate a novel alternative technique, consisting of intentional deployment of a NFM straight on into a terminus aneurysm, by assessing the mechanics, feasibility, and stability of the coils. METHODS: Silicon models of wide-neck terminus aneurysms were constructed. Straight on deployment of a NFM from the afferent vessel into the aneurysm was compared with conventional cross-neck deployment at a right angle position followed by Guglielmi Detachable Coil embolization simulation. The supporting forces of the two different methods of deployment were compared by using side-wall eccentric and en face compression tests. RESULTS: Straight on deployment of a NFM at a wide-neck terminus aneurysm was a relatively simple technique compared to cross-neck right angle deployment. Good stability of the coil mass was consistently achieved with adequate preservation of the parent vessel lumen. A larger residual neck space at the side without the stent and much coil mass protruded into parent vessel were observed in cross-neck stent deployment. Compression tests revealed a larger supporting force of the NFM with straight on deployment compared to the side wall radial force (p < 0.05). A potential problem with this technique is the possible inability or difficulty in retrieving a partially deployed coil. CONCLUSION: Stent-assisted coiling of wide-neck terminus aneurysms with straight on deployment of NFM consistently achieved a stable NFM-coil complex. The NFM also had a better supporting force in a straight position. Some technical difficulties may be encountered during subsequent coiling. This alternative technique to conventional cross-neck bridging appears to be another strategy for wide-neck terminus aneurysm coiling.
