Abstract

We herein report a case of a ruptured vertebral artery dissecting aneurysm involving the origin of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery that was treated using the stent-jack technique. After parent artery occlusion of the distal vertebral artery, stenting of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery was performed. Further coiling was needed because distal vertebral artery recanalization occurred due to transformation of the coil mass. The stent-jack technique for a ruptured vertebral artery dissecting aneurysm involving the origin of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery is effective; however, careful attention to recanalization after stenting is needed due to transformation of the coil mass.
