Abstract

Background: This study aimed to evaluate clinical and angiographic outcomes of Y-configuration double-stent-assisted (Y-stent) coiling using two closed-cell stents for wide-necked basilar tip aneurysm (BTA). Materials: A total of 25 patients underwent Y-stent coiling using two closed-cell stents as a first-time treatment in 18 (3 ruptured) BTAs, retreatment in 2 BTAs and as a third treatment in 5 wide-necked BTAs. Clinical and angiographic outcomes were evaluated retrospectively. Results: Treatment-related complications were three (12.0 %) thromboembolic infarctions due to two acute in-stent thromboses and one embolism. Twenty-two (88 %) patients had favorable outcomes (modified Rankin scale score [mRS], 0-2) during the follow-up period (mean, 30 months; range, 6-54 months). Two patients died: one from initial subarachnoid hemorrhage and the other from intracerebral hemorrhage due to underlying Moyamoya disease. Post-treatment angiograms showed complete occlusion in nine aneurysms, residual neck in 11 aneurysms and residual sac in five aneurysms. Follow-up angiograms were available at least once between 5 to 34 months (mean, 16 months) in 21 patients. Nineteen patients showed improved or stable states (complete occlusion, n = 17; residual neck, n = 2). Major recurrences occurred in two BTAs (9.5 %). Those two major recurrent aneurysms had been large-sized aneurysms at the initial coiling procedure. Both showed not only coil compaction but also progressive growth to giant-sized aneurysms and intra-aneurysmal thrombus formation at the Y-stent coiling as a third-time treatment. Conclusions: Y-stent coiling using two closed-cell stents is a safe and durable treatment option for wide-necked BTA, but may have limited efficacy for large/giant sized and thrombosed aneurysms.
