Abstract

Y-stent-assisted coiling is a technique used by neuroendovascular surgeons to treat complex, wide-necked, bifurcation aneurysms in locations such as basilar tip and middle cerebral artery bifurcation. Several recent studies have demonstrated low complication rate and favorable clinical and angiographic outcomes. The Y-stent technique is illustrated here in detail and the intraoperative nuances are also discussed to minimize potential complications associated with technique. The video can be found here: http://youtu.be/77pEmqx_fyQ .
