ABSTRACT
Residual intracranial aneurysm represents a continued risk of rupture and hemorrhage after incompletely surgically aneurysmal clipping. The authors describe a case of residual anterior communicating artery aneurysm after incomplete clipping, which was successfully managed by Guglielmi detachable coil(GDC) embolization. The endovascular treatment using GDC may be a good therapy for those patients in whom microsurgical clipping results in incomplete occlusion of the aneurysm and in whom reoperation is considered contraindicated or is unacceptable to patients.
Key Words: Anterior communicating artery aneurysm; Incompletely clipped aneuryms; GDC
