Undoubtedly, the most significant development in technology for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms since the release of the detachable coil has been flow diverting stents (FDS).1 The initial enthusiasm a decade ago was palpable; large and complex aneurysms with no good treatment option or having previously failed treatment were being safely cured by a simple endoluminal device implanted in a relatively short procedure.2 Early in the experience it was estimated that half of aneurysms could be treated with FDS technology.3
