With superior operative morbidity, similar rupture outcomes after treatment, and patient preference for minimally invasive operative techniques, endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms is performed with increasing frequency as compared to microsurgical techniques, including clip ligation. Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms requires facility with a multitude of interventional techniques. The constantly expanding list of endovascular tools available currently includes detachable coils, stents, balloons, high-density embolic glues, and flow-diversion devices.
