The treatment of intracranial aneurysms is changing as endovascular obliteration possibilities and long-term results are being published in regard to outcome. However, not all aneurysms are amenable to direct endovascular or surgical treatment. In such situations, a high flow bypass for flow preservation can be considered as indirect treatment alternative, enabling a trapping of the aneurysm or occlusion of the feeding artery. We present the case history of a 57 year-old patient suffering of a recurrent giant intracranial carotid aneurysm. The aneurysm could be excluded using a new cerebral high-flow bypass technique for which no temporary occlusion of any intracranial vessels is required. This technique reduces the risks of perioperative neurological complications.
