Abstract

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.
