We describe a case of incidental detection of an intracranial left ICA wide-necked aneurysm during digital subtraction angiography performed to assess a sub-occlusive and calcified stenosis in the extracranial portion of the same artery. Angioplasty and stenting of ICA stenosis, plus intracranial stent deployment across the aneurysm neck was performed during the same procedure. Aneurysm coil embolization was postponed to a further session one month later. The radiation dose and irradiated areas were also evaluated during endovascular procedures.
