Letter to the Editor. Hybrid approaches in pediatric neurovascular surgery

Restricted access

TO THE EDITOR: We read with interest the article by Ocal et al.2 describing their interesting case of a cervical carotid artery aneurysm in a pediatric patient treated with combined surgical and endovascular therapy (Ocal O, Yilmaz M, Peynircioglu B, et al: Hybrid vascular intervention for a giant cervical carotid artery aneurysm in a clopidogrel-hyporesponsive child. J Neurosurg Pediatr 22:265–269, September 2018). The authors describe a creative approach to treating this challenging lesion.

We recently published a similar case experience in Cureus, describing a hybrid approach for the surgical reconstruction of the
