ABSTRACT


pCONus is a stent like endovascular device which aids in retention of coils within wide necked bifurcation aneurysms. It is retrievable even after complete deployment and is detached electrolytically. pCONus aided coiling of wide necked bifurcation aneurysms has a high technical success rate and a good safety profile. Different complications have been described in literature with the usage of pCONus. This case report describes a yet unreported complication of un-re-sheath-ability of a misaligned deployed pCONus device.
Keywords: Aneurysm, Endovascular Coiling, PCONus Device, Waffle Cone Technique
