In the article “Predictors of cerebral aneurysm persistence and occlusion after flow diversion: a single-institution series of 445 cases with angiographic follow-up,” Bender et al. present their concept of Pipeline embolization device (PED) flow diversion treatment of anterior cerebral circulation aneurysms and their analysis of predictors of aneurysm persistence and occlusion.2 Over a 5-year period, 491 PED procedures were performed at a single institution, and in 445 cases, a follow-up catheter angiogram obtained at least 6 months after the procedure was available, and all were included for analysis. Most of the aneurysms treated arose from the
