Abstract

Introduction: We report the experiences of 25 Italian centers, analyzing intra- and periprocedural complications of endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms using Silk (Balt Extrusion, Montmorency, France) and pipeline embolization devices (EV3 Inc, Irvine California). Methods: Two hundred seventy-three patients with 295 cerebral aneurysms, enrolled in 25 centers in Italy and treated with the new flow-diverter devices, were evaluated; 142 patients were treated with Silk and 130 with pipeline (in one case, both devices were used). In 14 (5.2 %) cases devices were used with coils. Aneurysm size was >15 mm in 46.9 %, 5-15 mm in 42.2 %, and
