General non-invasive endovascular procedures for treatment of intracranial aneurysms involve stenting across the aneurysm neck, embolization and coiling of the aneurysm cavity. However it cannot be used to treat many wide-necked and fusiform intracranial aneurysms, or carotid-cavernous fistulae. Stent grafts will have the capability of completely preventing the blood flow into the aneurysm cavity or fistula rent, and thereby reducing the risk of aneurysm rupture in the brain. An endovascular approach of placing a stent graft would be a promising method [1–3].
