Intracranial aneurysms are a subject of controversy. Anterior circulation aneurysms are usually considered surgical territory, yet endovascular prowess can affect good results with minimal morbidity and comparable long-term results. We present a complex anterior cerebral artery aneurysm that would require either a bypass or a complex vessel reconstructive procedure. Instead, we proceeded to perform a stent-assisted coiling trapping the coils inside the aneurysm through a covered stent, thereby ensuring vascular continuity and complete aneurysm control. A brief review of the literature is also added to put this report in perspective.
