Treating dissections and dissecting aneurysms requires maintenance of flow through the true lumen and exclusion of the false lumen from the circulation. A dissecting aneurysm of the vertebral artery presented with both a true and false lumen within the aneurysmal sac. Stenting of the true lumen followed by coil embolization of both lumens was performed. Management options and decision-making are discussed for this unique situation.
