BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE:: To present the feasibility of using the Ascent® balloon, a new double lumen remodeling balloon, for a new two-in-one technique allowing coiling through the lumen of the balloon and no use of an additional coiling microcatheter. CLINICAL PRESENTATION:: A 55 year-old woman presented with a 7.7 mm x 4.5 mm incidental anterior communicating artery aneurysm. Only one A1 segment (left side) was patent on cerebral angiogram. A 6F Fargo Max guiding catheter was positioned in the left petrous internal carotid artery. The Ascent® balloon was placed in front of the neck of the aneurysm after navigation on a Traxcess .014 in guide wire. Coiling of the aneurysm sac was performed via one lumen of the device, under iterative inflations of the balloon through the second lumen. CONCLUSION:: This new two-in-one technique using a sole remodeling balloon without an additional coiling microcatheter is very promising, especially in cases of small calibre parent artery.
