Selective microcatheterization of intracranial aneurysms during coiling can be limited by tortuous vasculature. Stabilization of the microcatheter via distal placement of the guide catheter in the intracranial vasculature may cause vessel dissection or vasospasm. We describe the application of an intermediate sized bridging catheter in four patients with tortuous vasculature who underwent successful coiling of ruptured aneurysms. No complications occurred. The intermediate sized bridging catheter is a useful adjunct for navigation of tortuous parent artery vasculature.
