Abstract :

Background: Pediatric traumatic intracranial pseudoaneurysm (TIPA) is a relatively rare clinical entity resulting from blunt, penetrating or iatrogenic head trauma. The diagnosis, management and prognosis of patients with pediatric TIPA is not wellunderstood. Surgical craniotomy for TIPA is a high-risk operation. Advancements in minimally-invasive technology have allowed for endovascular reconstruction of TIPA. Case reports: We present our experience with use of endovascular covered stents for treatment of three pediatric cases with TIPA. The clinical and radiological characteristics are presented. No procedure-related complications or deaths occurred during follow-up. Conclusions: In this study, the use of Willis covered stent was associated with favorable prognoses in 3 patients with TIPA. No major complications were encountered during follow-up. The Willis covered stent appears to be a viable therapeutic modality in these patients. A definitive prognosis assessment will necessitate prospective clinical trials with longer duration of follow-up.
