giant arterial aneurysm, stream-directive stent Silk, endovascular treatment


The case of endovascular surgical treatment of giant aneurysm of cavernous part of internal carotid artery by stream-directive stent Silk implantation as an example of new advanced technology for brain giant aneurysms’ treatment is given. The results of control investigation 3 months after operation showed high efficacy of applied endovascular technology and satisfactory result of surgical treatment. This method requires further research.
