We describe a modified stent-assisted coiling technique, named the semi-deployment technique, in the endovascular treatment of wide-neck aneurysms. Thirty-one consecutive patients with 31 wide-necked or fusiform intracranial aneurysms were treated with the semi-deployment technique. The technical feasibility of the procedure, procedure-related complications, angiographic results, clinical outcome and follow-up angiography were evaluated. In every case, the semi-deployment technique was successfully deployed. Immediate angiography demonstrated complete occlusion in 24 cases (77.4%), neck remnant in four cases (12.9%), and incomplete occlusion in three cases (9.7%). Procedural-related morbidity occurred in one patient (3.2%) but no procedural-related mortality. A favorable clinical outcome (Modified Ran-kin Scale score 0-2) was observed in 90.3% of the patients (average follow-up time, 23.1 months). No rehemorrhage of treated aneurysms occurred. Angiography follow-up was obtained in 22 cases (71.0 %). Three aneurysms (13.6 % of the follow-up angiograms) demonstrated recanalization. No delayed coil or stent migration was found. One patient had in-stent stenosis as a delayed complication. We found that the semi-deployment technique was helpful in the treatment of wide-neck aneurysms.
