Salvage Neuroform stent-assisted coiling for recurrent giant aneurysm after waffle-cone treatment.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We report a case of aneurysm progression after waffle-cone treatment. A patient in their seventies presented with headaches. Four years earlier, this individual had undergone waffle-cone treatment of a giant ruptured left ophthalmic aneurysm. Angiography demonstrated aneurysm growth. A second stent was deployed through the initially placed stent to recreate the aneurysm neck and to provide support for stent-assisted coiling. The residual aneurysm was coiled with good outcome.
