A 47-year-old female with a history of a ruptured left posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) aneurysm, status post coil embolization and retreatment for recurrence, presented with evidence of a recurrent dissecting PICA aneurysm. Given that these aneurysms are considered high risk and have a greater propensity for rupture than anterior circulation aneurysms, retreatment was recommended. With the patient’s strong preference for endovascular therapy, flow diversion with a Silk Vista Baby was performed. Given the low-profile design of the device, a radial artery approach and coaxial technique were used to deploy the flow diverter. The device was successfully placed, with complete obliteration of the aneurysm after 1 year.
