BACKGROUND: Y-stent-assisted coiling is one of the eligible techniques for the treatment of complex bifurcation aneurysms. In majority of previous literature, Y-stenting has been performed using stents that could be delivered through large profile microcatheters that are often difficult to manipulate during navigation through sharply angled side branches. Attempts to navigate with these large profile catheters might cause serious complications during Y-stenting procedure.
