Abstract

Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms has evolved rapidly in the past decades, and is now the primary modality for their treatment. Improvements in imaging modalities have led to earlier detection of small aneurysms enabling thorough follow-up. Advances in treatment modalities have led to safe and effective treatment options for complex lesions. New devices can also be associated with new and unique complications. Finally, the rapid development in the field has led to more stringent protocols for the management of intracranial aneurysms. Critical to the development of new technologies and techniques is an understanding of the implications and effects that they may have on patient outcomes, as well as cataloguing and investigating the unique complications that may arise with their use. Consequently, this has resulted in more rigorous documentation and higher quality data, allowing for a better understanding of these lesions.
