We present the case of a balloon-assisted, stent-supported coil embolization of a basilar tip aneurysm. Initially, a balloon extending from the basilar artery into the right PCA was placed. (3) However, even with a more proximal purchase, coils were found to impinge on the left PCA. Subsequently, a transcirculation approach was performed, where the left posterior communicating artery was utilized as a conduit for balloon support and the coils were embolized from the ipsilateral vertebral artery. (1) However, after this transcirculation approach was completed, there was a coil tail extruding from the aneurysm. The balloon was then removed over an exchange wire and a horizontal stent advanced, spanning the entire neck of the aneurysm, eliminating the extruded coil. (2) The video can be found here: .
