Pipeline Device can Treat Challenging 'Distal Anterior' Brain Aneurysms

Some patients with difficult-to-treat aneurysms have been treated by using the Pipeline Embolization Device (PED). The PED is safe for all types of brain aneurysms and was originally developed to treat ones that were located in deeper areas of the brain. In this study, researchers wanted to see how successful PED treatment would be for aneurysms that were located in areas that would affect blood flow to the front of the brain such as the middle cerebral artery and others. Most of these aneurysms are treated by clipping or endovascular coiling. Using PEDs would be a new technique. To read more, click here.
