Answer

Progressive refinement in endovascular techniques and devices tailored for the cerebrovasculature have expanded therapeutic options available for definitive treatment of cerebral aneurysms. More pliable, low-profile stents may be used for stent-assisted coiling for obliteration of wide-necked aneurysms.
