Full Study Name

Safety and Effectiveness of the Treatment of Wide-Neck, Saccular Intracranial Aneurysms with the Neuroform Atlas™ Stent System (IRB no. 40978)


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the investigational use of the Neuroform Atlas Stent in patients with brain aneurysms. An aneurysm is a bulging (ballooning) of a blood vessel caused by a weakness in the vessel’s wall. A standard treatment option is to have a procedure called stent-assisted endovascular coiling, which involves inserting a tube into a blood vessel to place the stent and coils into the aneurysm. Researchers will collect data on the Neuroform Atlas Stent and examine its safety and effectiveness for use with embolic coils.
