Objective: To present the results of retrospective analyses of aneurysms treated with the remodeling technique, and identify predictors for successful aneurysm occlusion on initial treatment and intermediate to long term follow-up.

Methods: Retrospective analysis of 266 aneurysms in 245 patients treated at UIC and affiliates from 1995 to 2007 was performed. Aneurysm size, neck diameter, dome to neck ratio, per cent occlusion, aneurysm location and initial patient presentation was correlated with morphologic outcome following initial treatment and on follow-up evaluations. Periprocedural complications and post-coiling hemorrhage rates were also …
