Endovascular coiling of multiple (more than four) intracranial aneurysms. Case report.

The incidence of multiple intracranial aneurysms has been reported from 5% to 35%. But over four multiple aneurysms are extremely rare. Sometimes it is very difficult to draw a clear line between ruptured ones and unruptured others especially in multiple aneurysm cases with even distribution of subarachnoid haemorrhage on basal cistern. We present two cases of multiple aneurysms, more than four, which were successfully treated by endovascular coiling at the same time. Our experience suggests an endovascular procedure would be the gold standard of treatment for ruptured multiple intracranial aneurysms.
