009 Preservation of ophthalmic artery arising from aneurysm body during endovascular coil occlusion
- Neurointerventional Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Introduction and Purpose: Although several treatment strategies have been reported for preserving arteries arising from the dome of an aneurysm, current clinical practice suggests sacrifice of the parent artery is the best option for durable occlusion of the aneurysm. This is the first report of durable unassisted coil occlusion of ophthalmic artery aneurysms with preservation of the parent artery.
