PED was reported as safe and efficient for small aneurysms (JNS. 122(6): 1498-1502, 2014). Some authors reported about OA covered with FDS including PED. OA covered with FDS had potential visual deficits. In this paper, the authors classified OA origin in three types. Types 2 and 3 had the majority of OA origins. OA in type 3 was minor, but we should consider surgical indication and procedures for aneurysms with OA in type 3.
