Thromboembolic events are known complications of endovascular coiling of intracerebral aneurysms. We report a case of a 50-year-old patient whose ruptured middle cerebral artery aneurysm was treated with endovascular coiling, which was complicated by occlusion of the inferior M2 trunk during the procedure. An emergency craniotomy was performed to enable coil retrieval, evacuation of the thrombus and clipping of the aneurysm. All the middle cerebral artery branches were recanalised and the patient recovered with no neurological deficits. Our experience suggests that an emergency salvage operation for thrombosis after endovascular coiling is a treatment option offering a good clinical outcome.
