- Recommendation ID
Current evidence on the safety and efficacy of endovascular insertion of an intrasaccular wire-mesh blood-flow disruption device for intracranial aneurysms is adequate to support the use of this procedure provided that standard arrangements are in place for clinical governance, consent and audit.
- Any explanatory notes
Patient selection should be done by a multidisciplinary team, except for in emergency situations, when this may be replaced by a discussion between an interventional neuroradiologist and neurosurgeon.
The procedure should only be done in specialised centres with expertise in the use of this technology and access to neurosurgical facilities.
