Endovascular Treatment of Wide Neck Brain Aneurysm ? WEB Device

Sirakov S. [6] | Popivanov P. [3] | Sirakov A. [6] | Sirakova K. [5]

Abstract: For many years endovascular treatment is a method of choice in treating ruptured and unruptured aneurysms [1-4]. Up till now many different endovascular devices to treat intracranial aneurysms have been designed and enhanced. This is needed due to the large diversity of the anatomy and structural specifics of brain aneurysms. The standard coiling as well as balloon- and stent assisted coil introduction, using flow diverters and other techniques aim at protecting the vital cerebral arteries, the performant branches by preserving their lumen passage and thus make the treatment of even complex aneurysm configurations efficient and safer. [5-9] WEB device is an intra-secular ellipsoid of interwoven microscopic threads, envisaged for embolization of wide neck aneurysms, once its placement in the aneurysmal sac results in complete isolation of the aneurysm from blood circulation. There are several WEB devices already available for endovascular treatment WEB-DL, WEB-SL and WEB-SLS in various sizes. WEB implants are delivered like all other systems and the techniques they use for endovascular treatment. These devices are introduced by microcatheters of inner diameter > 0, 027.
