Abstract

The crossing Y-stent technique is a viable option for coiling of wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms. However, little is known about the long-term impact of this technique. Very late (>1 year) stent thrombosis following the placement of a crossing Y-stent with dual closed-cell stents for the coiling of a wide-necked basilar tip aneurysm, which has not been reported to date, is described.
