Abstract

OBJECTIVE Coiling of wide-necked and complex bifurcation aneurysms frequently requires implantation of double stents in various configurations. T-stent-assisted coiling involves the nonoverlapping implantation of 2 stents to protect the daughter vessels of bifurcation and is followed by coiling of the aneurysm. The authors studied the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of the T-stent-assisted coiling procedure as well as the midterm angiographic/clinical outcomes of patients with wide-necked bifurcation intracranial aneurysms treated using this technique.
