Objective: We aimed to present the treatment and follow-up results of 41 patients who were treated for intracranial aneurysm with flow diverter stents. Method: Forty-one patients (Age range 27-68 years) were treated with the flow-diverting devices during January 2010 and January 2014. Aneurysms ranged in size from small to large (1-30 mm) and include wide-necked aneurysms, multiple, saccular, blister, dissecan, fusiform and recurrent intracranial aneurysms. Control skull X-Ray Graphy was

Conclusions: Complete angiographic occlusion was achieved in 36 patients (88%) at follow-up digital subtraction angiogram. Two transient morbidities and one permanent morbidity occurred due to stent thrombosis. There was no mortality observed. Flow diverter stents are an effective tool in the treatment of large wide neck, high growth rates, and technical problematic aneurysms to treat with conventional endovascular methods.
