Abstract

We report two cases in which wide-neck basilar aneurysms were treated with overlapping stent-supported coil embolization. This overlapping technique ensures complete stent interface with the aneurysm neck and likely improves long-term outcomes. We demonstrated the feasibility of this novel technique and suggest its application for other bifurcation aneurysms requiring stent-supported coil embolization.
