Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The outcome of flow diversion for middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms, one of the most common sites for intracranial aneurysms, has not been defined thoroughly. We assessed our outcomes in MCA aneurysms (MCAAs) treated by flow diversion, i.e., with either dedicated flow diverters or telescopic stents.
