Treatment of wide-necked complex intracranial aneurysms continues to challenge neurointerventionalists. Intrasaccular flow diverters have expanded the armamentarium considerably and are now used extensively. While five types of devices have already obtained the CE mark for use within Europe, only the Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Other intrasaccular devices are the Luna/Artisse Aneurysm Embolization System (Medtronic), the Medina Embolic Device (Medtronic), the Contour Neurovascular System (Cerus), and the Neqstent Coil Assisted Flow Diverter (Cerus). This mini review will provide a compact overview of these devices and a summary of the current literature.
