Abstract

From August 1993 to November 1995 39 cerebral aneurysms in 38 patients were treated with Balt MDS coils. In 11 cases the aneurysm was located in the intracranial carotid artery. Treatment was carried out within the first seven days of subarachnoid haemorrhage in 10 out of 11 cases. Patients' clinical conditions on the Hunt and Hess scale were the following: 7 patients ≤2 and 4 patients between 3 and 4. Complete occlusion of the aneurysm was achieved in 3 cases; in 1 of these complete occlusion was obtained in two successive sessions. Subtotal occlusion around 90% was achieved in 3 cases; in 1 of these angiographic follow-up a month after treatment demonstrated 100% occlusion of the aneurysm. Technical difficulties prevented treatment in 5 cases; in 1 of these the aneurysm sac ruptured during treatment. One patient presented hemiparesis, probably caused by thrombo-embolism, 7 days after treatment, but made a satisfactory clinical recovery. The outcome of the study is analysed in the light of including this technique in the treatment protocol for cerebral aneurysms.
