EffectiveNess and SAfety of Small ANeurysm COiling Trial

Brief description of study

To compare the safety and efficacy of treating small aneurysms with coils specially designed for small aneurysms to historically reported rates of safety and efficacy for the treatment of larger aneurysms.

Detailed Study Description

This is a prospective cohort study whereby patients who undergo endovascular treatment with coils for intracranial aneurysms will be studied for initial procedural and 12-18 month post-treatment outcome. The procedural failure rate (defined above) of treating small aneurysms with specially designed coils will be compared to pre-specified historical occurrences. This evaluation will occur within the framework of "non-inferiority" (i.e. comparable success to coiling of large aneurysms).
