Objective To discuss the availability and advantage of em bolization for intracranial aneurysms. Methods From September 2001 to Augest 2002, 12 patients with intracranial aneurysms were found by DSA in ou r department. 5 of all were undertaken the standard GDC embolization for intracr anial aneurysms. We contrasted the the DSA results between pre and post embol ization, taking a consecutive follow up. Results All aneurysms ha d achieved dense occlusion by GDC coils. All patients had no embolization-associ ated complications. Conclusion Early embolization for intracranial aneurysms is a useful approach for prevention of rerupture of intracranial aneu rysms.
