  • Probable Benefit Measures as Successful Aneurysm Treatment With the LVIS™ Device, as Measured by Aneurysm Angiographic Occlusion of ≥ 90% at 6 Months (± 4 Weeks) [ Time Frame: 6 months ± 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Imaging from each subject to be reviewed by an independent core lab who will be comparing with baseline and post procedure images.
  • Safety Measures as Any Major Stroke or Death Within 30 Days, or Major Ipsi-lateral Stroke or Neurological Death Within 6 Months [ Time Frame: 30 days-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A major stroke is defined as a new neurological event that persists for >24 hours and results in a ≥ 4 point increase in the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score compared to baseline or compared to any subsequent lower score.

  • Parent Artery Patency Measured Angiographically at 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To be assessed by Independent Core Lab.
  • Successful Delivery of the LVIS™ Device Measures by Technical Success [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Technical success being defined as: access to the lesion, successful deployment of the LVIS™ device.
  • Significant Stenosis(>50%) of the Treated Artery at 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Parent Artery will be measured baseline and compared at 6 months post procedure per review by the Independent Core Lab.
  • Stent Migration at 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Angiographic images will be comparing post procedure sent position to 6 months
  • Device and Procedure Related Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Day 1-6months(± 4 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    All Serious Adverse events will be reported per protocol
  • Unplanned Embolization Coiling Within 6 Months [ Time Frame: Day 1-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    If the target lesion(aneurysm)treated needed further embolization within 6 months of initial treatment(detected during follow up or unscheduled visit ),data will be recorded and analyzed.

Feasibility Study of the LVIS™ (Low-profile Visualized Intraluminal Support)Device
A Feasibility Study of the MicroVention,Inc.(LVIS™) Neurovascular Self-Expanding Retrievable Stent System in the Treatment of Wide-Necked Intracranial Artery Aneurysms

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and probable benefit of the Low-profile Visualized Intraluminal Support (LVIS™ and LVIS™ Jr.)devices from MicroVention, Inc. when used to facilitate endovascular coiling of unruptured wide-neck intracranial aneurysms with bare platinum embolization coils.

With the stent-assisted technique to treat wide neck intracranial aneurysms, the neurovascular stent is placed across the aneurysm neck, to act as a bridge to prevent coils from protruding into the parent artery. Stenting may allow to more safely achieve a higher packing density of coils. These effects may improve the rates of complete aneurysm occlusion and enhance the durability of the coiling treatment.The LVIS™ device manufactured by MicroVention, Inc. has a braided design which may provide superior conformability and parent artery apposition, as well as a more reliable continuous and uniform neck bridging than other neurovascular stents.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject whose age is between 18 and 80 years old
  • Subject with unruptured wide neck, saccular,intracranial aneurysm, < 20mm maximum diameter in any plane ( wide neck defined as neck width ≥ 4mm or dome to-neck ratio < 2).
  • Subject's aneurysm arises from a parent vessel with a diameter of ≥ 2.5m and ≤ 4.5mm.
  • Subject or his/her legally authorized representative understands the nature of the procedure and provides signed informed consent form.
  • Subject is willing to return to the investigational site for the 30- day and 6-month follow-up evaluations

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject who presents with ruptured aneurysm, unless rupture occured 30 days or more prior to screening.
  • Subject who presents with an intracranial mass or currently undergoing radiation therapy for carcinoma of the head or neck region.
  • Subject with an International Normalized Ratio (INR)≥ 1.5
  • Subject with serum creatinine level >2mg/dl at time of enrollment
  • Subject with known allergies to nickel-titanium metal
  • Subject with known allergies to aspirin, heparin, ticlopidine, or clopidogrel
  • Subject with a life threatening allergy to contrast(unless treatment for allergy is tolerated)
  • Subject who has a known cardiac disorder, likely to be associated with cardioembolic symptoms such as atrial fibrillation
  • Subject with any condition which in the opinion of the treating physician would place the subject at a high risk of embolic stroke
  • Subject who is currently participating in another clinical research study
  • Subject who has had a previous intracranial stenting procedure associated with the target aneurysm
