Introduction Intracranial aneurysms are a focal dilatation of the vessel wall, the rupture of these, causes subarachnoid hemorrhage. Until now, endovascular management is the ideal treatment, providing the interventionist a range of options among which the stent and coils embolization stands out because of its occlusion rate.
Aim of Study This study presents the results of a retrospective cohort comparing the effectiveness, morbidity, and mortality of IA treatment with laser-cut stent-assisted coils versus braided stents.
Methods Retrospective cohort of patients diagnosed with unruptured intracranial aneurysms treated with coil-assisted laser-cut stents or braided stents.
Results 138 patients with 147 intracranial aneurysms were analyzed, with the main antecedent of arterial hypertension (48.55%), the most used stents group were the laser cut stents, the most used among these was the solitaire (54.95%). Hydrocoils were used in 66.89% of the patients and in-stent angioplasty was performed in 6.12%.
Conclusion Treatment of patients with intracranial aneurysms with laser-cut stents or braided stents and coils is just as safe and effective.
