The aim of this study is to evaluate the technical feasibility of the Derivo Embolization Device (DED). Implantation of the DED was attempted in 10 aneurysms. The procedures were technically successful in all cases. Balloon angioplasty was performed for better wall apposition in one case. There are no procedure-related complications. Endovascular treatment with the DED is associated with high success rates. DED has a great opening pressure for better wall apposition. However, more stiff characteristic of the stent compared to other flow diverters is a weakness.

Disclosures D. Kim: None.
