We report the histological findings in two patients treated using Guglielmi detachable coils with almost complete occlusion of the aneurysms.Autopsies of these patients were performed one week and one year after GDC embolization respectively. In one aneurysm that was obtained at autopsy one week after embolization, the histological findings revealed coils and an unorganized thrombus-filled aneurysm sac; an incomplete cell-lining on the luminal side of fibrin thrombi in the region of the neck of the aneurysm was recognized. In the other aneurysm in which autopsy was performed one year after embolization, an organized fibrous tissue at the margin of the aneurysmal wall and vascular granulation tissue at the center of the aneurysm were observed. There is a single layer of endothelium covering fibrous tissue in the neck of the aneurysm. We discuss the healing process after GDC treatment.
