Safety and Efficacy of Stent-Assisted Coiling of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms Using Low-Profile Stents in Small Parent Arteries

Published July 1, 2021 as 10.3174/ajnr.A7196 ORIGINAL RESEARCH INTERVENTIONAL Safety and Efficacy of Stent-Assisted Coiling of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms Using Low-Profile Stents in Small Parent Arteries J. Kim, H.J. Han, W. Lee, S.K. Park, J. Chung, Y.B. Kim, and K.Y. Park ABSTRACT BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Stent-assisted coiling of intracranial aneurysms arising from small vessels (# 2.0 mm) is a common procedure. However, data regarding its treatment outcomes are scarce. This study evaluated the clinical and radiologic out- comes of stent-assisted coiling using low-profile stents for aneurysms of small parent arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From November 2015 to October 2020, sixty-four patients with 66 aneurysms arising from parent arteries of #2.0 mm were treated with stent-assisted coiling using a Low-Profile Visualized Intraluminal Support Junior (LVIS Jr) or the Neuroform Atlas stent in a single institution. The clinical and radiologic data were retrospectively reviewed, and the risk factors for procedure-related complications were evaluated. RESULTS: The LVIS Jr and Neuroform Atlas stents were used in 22 (33.3%) and 44 (66.7%) cases, respectively. Technical success was achieved in 66 cases (100%). Immediate postprocedural aneurysm occlusion grades assessed by the Raymond-Roy occlusion classifi- cation were I (57.6%), II (19.7%), and III (22.7%), respectively.
