Aims and objectives: To show our experience in the endovascular treatment of superior cerebellar artery aneurysms.

Methods and materials: Patient population During 5 years, 7 cases of superior cerebellar artery aneurysms were treated by endovascular embolization with GDCs. Six patients (85.7%) were women, and 1 patient (14.3%) was a man Mean age of the patients was 65.45 years. The age distribution included 2 patients (28.6%) between [...]

Results: Immediate Anatomical Results: All aneurysms were successfully treated through endovascular coil embolization using simple coiling technique and double microcatheters technique. As shown in Table (2) and Figure (5), the immediate anatomical results showed complete occlusion in all the aneurysms [...]

Conclusion: Coiling is proved to be a safe and effective treatment for the majority of patients with superior cerebellar artery aneurysms. Our results showed that coiling is a safe and effective treatment in patients with superior cerebellar artery aneurysms with less morbidity and mortality rates in comparis[...]
