Background and purpose: To summarize the theoretical background and
existing technical achievements of flow modification techniques in the
treatment of intracranial aneurysms.
The evolution of the concept of flow modification for aneurysm treatment
is overviewed within the published literature on application of stents
for aneurysms. The newest achievements using dedicated flow modifying
devices is discussed.
Reconstruction of laminar flow within intracranial arteries harboring
aneurysms is feasible. Reorientation of flow using dedicated flow
modifying devices is a highly effective technique in the treatment of
large, broad neck, otherwise untreatable aneurysms.
