In the successful treatment of carotid siphon aneurysms there was the world before – and after – flow diverters…. but does that mean they’re now the only game in town?

When a carotid siphon aneurysm is treated by a flow diverter the treatment works, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges to anticipate, techniques to learn…and experience to be shared.

Join Professors Jacques Moret and Laurent Spelle as they and their expert panel discuss the use of flow diverters from the parameters in choosing them, to complications in their use or what might be improved in future iterations such as different coatings or improved deployment for braided stents.

We need to remember in treating aneurysms of the carotid siphon, as Prof. Moret explains, that “this is a biological tube, and we must pay attention to the biology and the branches” – join us and watch these specially selected cases and discover why.
