The Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device has FDA approval for treatment of wide-necked intracranial bifurcation aneurysms. It has been shown to result in adequate occlusion in bifurcation aneurysms overall, but its usefulness in the individual bifurcation locations has been evaluated separately only in few case series, which were limited by small sample sizes.
In this podcast, JNIS Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Felipe C. Albuquerque, interviews Dr. Nimer Adeeb (1)and Dr. Adam Dmytriw (2) on their paper "Comparing treatment outcomes of various intracranial bifurcation aneurysms locations using the Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device".
