Study Description
Brief Summary:
The purpose of this prospective registry is to collect real world, post-marketing data on the use of Stryker Target® 360,Target® 2D, and 2nd generation Target® Nano coils for the embolization of ruptured or unruptured intracranial saccular aneurysms. Up to 300 patients (150 in the TARGET 360°/Helical arm and 150 in the New NANO arm) presenting with intracranial aneurysms suitable for coil embolization will be enrolled at up to 20 sites. A post hoc analysis comparing Target® 360° and Target® 2D coil technical and clinical endpoints will be performed.

Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Target 360°, 2D, Nano Coils
Subjects will undergo embolization using Target 360°, 2D, Nano Coils for the treatment of their intracranial aneurysm.
Device: Target 360°, 2D Coils, Nano Coils
Other Names:
  • Target coils
  • Target Nano coil

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Packing Density [ Time Frame: At immediate post-procedure (Day 1) ]
    Packing density will be calculated based on aneurysm volume and amount of coil used during the embolization procedure.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occlusion Rate [ Time Frame: At immediate post-procedure (Day 1) and 3-9 month follow-up ]
    Angiographic occlusion of the aneurysm will be adjudicated by an independent core lab using immediate post-procedure and 3-9 month follow-up angiography.

  2. Aneurysm Re-access Rate [ Time Frame: At end of study procedure (Day 1) ]
    The rate of re-assess (Microcatheter kick-back rate) of the target aneurysm will be captured during the procedure.

  3. Time of Fluoroscopic Exposure [ Time Frame: At immediate post-procedure (Day 1) ]
    Total time of fluoroscopic exposure will be captured from the initial recording of the road map to the final angiogram after completion of the coil embolization procedure.

  4. Overall Procedure Time [ Time Frame: At Immediate post-procedure (Day 1) ]
    The overall procedure time will be captured from the time of guide catheter placement to the end of the coil embolization procedure.

  5. Aneurysm Recurrence [ Time Frame: 3-9 month follow-up ]
  6. Aneurysm Re-treatment Rate [ Time Frame: 3-9 month follow-up ]
    Aneurysm re-treatment rates will be tracked and recorded during the 3-9 month follow-up

  7. Aneurysm Bleed and Re-bleed Rate [ Time Frame: 3-9 month follow-up ]
    Aneurysm Bleed and Re-bleed Rate will be assessed and recorded at the 3-9 month follow-up.

  8. Treatment-related Morbidity and Mortality [ Time Frame: from study procedure (Day 1) to 3-9 month follow-up ]
    Treatment-related morbidity and morality will be tracked and recorded from study procedure through the 3-9 month follow-up.

  9. Modified Rankin Score [ Time Frame: At baseline (Day 1) and hospital discharge (Day 3) and 3-9 month follow-up ]
    Modified Rankin score will be recorded at baseline, hospital discharge, and during the 3-9 month follow-up.

  10. Device-related serious adverse events [ Time Frame: From the study procedure (Day 1) until 3-9 month follow up ]
    Procedural and post-procedural serious adverse events related to the device and/or procedure will be captured and recorded at the end of the procedure and until the patient has completed the 3-9 month follow-up.

  11. Length of hospital stay [ Time Frame: At hospital discharge (Day 3) ]
    Length of hospital stay will be recorded at the time of patient discharge.

  12. Technical and clinical endpoints of Target 360° and 2D coils [ Time Frame: 3-9 month follow-up ]
    A post hoc analysis comparing Target 360° and 2D coil primary and secondary technical and clinical endpoints will be performed upon final data analysis.
