We describe the case of a 76-year-old man admitted to our hospital for mild subarachnoid haemorrhage detected by CT scan in an aneurysm of the left middle cerebral artery bifurcation treated surgically 29 years earlier and not completely occluded. Angiography disclosed a further aneurysm in the anterior communicating artery. During the same procedure we treated the residual aneurysm in the left middle cerebral artery bifurcation positioning a Neuroform3 stent (Boston) and embolization deploying two biologically active Cerecyte coils (Balt) for a total of 10 cm and excluding the communicating artery aneurysm from the circulation releasing two active Cerecyte coils for a total length of 30.9 cm. The procedure was well tolerated by the patient and did not give rise to neurological deficits.
