Abstract

Background:

In neurovascular treatment planning, endovascular devices to manage complex intracranial aneurysms requiring intervention are often selected based on conventional measurements and interventional neuroradiologist experience. A recently developed technology allows a patient-specific 3D-printed model to mimic the navigation experience. The goal of this study was to assess the effect of pre-procedure 3D simulation on procedural and clinical outcomes for wide-neck aneurysm embolization.
