Case Description

Female, 71 years old.

Unruptured treatment of Left ICA termination aneurysm.

Case History

Incidentally detected (MRA) Left Internal Carotid Artery (ICA) 

termination aneurysm.

Previous coiling of acute Anterior Communicating

Artery aneurysm (ACOM) with Sub-Arachnoid Haemorrhage (SAH).

Treatment Options

  • Balloon-assisted coiling

  • Stent-assisted coiling

  • WEB device (Sequent Medical)

  • pCONus device (Phenox)

  • Surgery

During a multi-disciplinary team meeting, all treatment options

were discussed. It was decided to use the Contour Neurovascular System™.

There are several advantages of the Contour Neurovascular System. Patients potentially avoid the need for a dual antiplatelet therapy regimen, as well as the risks associated with balloon-assisted coiling in Middle Cerebral Artery (MCA) territory.

Additionally, the procedure time is short and can lead to complete obliteration of the aneurysm upon deployment.

Treatment technique


  • Right trans femoral catheterization.

  • 8F sheath placed in right common femoral artery.

  • 6F Neuron MAX (Penumbra, Inc) placed in left internal carotid artery for proximal support.

  • 6F Navien (Medtronic Neurovascular) was used for distal support.

A 3D rotational angiogram was performed. The aneurysm was carefully measured, and diameters taken in both AP and lateral planes.

A 7 mm Contour Neurovascular System™ was Implanted.

Immediate stasis was observed within the aneurysm.

No immediate complications were encountered.

Total fluoroscopic time was 16 minutes.
