Abstract

Flow diverting stents are emerging as a treatment option for difficult intracranial aneurysms. Current grading scales for assessment of angiographic outcomes following aneurysm treatment do not apply to aneurysms treated by flow diversion. We propose a novel grading scale based on the degree of angiographic filling and contrast stasis. This scale will facilitate communication and standardize reporting of outcomes following flow diversion treatments.
