PED was initially developed for wide-neck and large and giant aneurysms. PED has been recognized as an excellent option for patients with intracranial aneurysms gradually.
To date, a majority of previously published studies are small single-institution case series, and their results may not be generalizable to the overall patient population. We can acquire greater knowledge by this study.
This study shows PED is a safe and effective device for intracranial aneurysms with a broad range of sizes and locations and ruptured status, though there was no overall standardization in the perioperative management, including the use of platelet testing.
