Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Treatment by the PC 400 coils
Patients enrolled in this study must be those treated according to the cleared indication for the PC 400 System in the Instructions for Use.
Device: PC 400 coils

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Packing density with the number of coils implanted [ Time Frame: During the procedure ]
  2. Time of fluoroscopic exposure [ Time Frame: During the procedure ]
  3. Procedural device-related serious adverse events at immediate post-procedure [ Time Frame: During the procedure ]
  4. Quality of aneurysm occlusion post-operatively and at 12±3 months post-procedure based on the Raymond Scale [ Time Frame: At 1 year post-procedure ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Acute occlusion of the aneurysm sac at immediate post-procedure [ Time Frame: At immediate post-procedure ]
  2. Adverse events occurring during the procedure and in the 30±7 days following the treatment. [ Time Frame: During and at 30 days post-procedure ]
