Endovascular platinum coil embolization of incompletely surgically clipped cerebral aneurysms.

The authors present two cases of residual aneurysm filling after surgical clipping which were successfully managed by intravascular placement of platinum coils. Management of residual aneurysms and possible future role of transcatheter therapy are discussed.
