Abstract

The PulseRider (Cerenovus, Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices, New Brunswick, NJ, USA) is a neck reconstruction device that is used for the treatment of unruptured wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms. Herein, we describe the case of a 51-year-old male patient with a basilar apex aneurysm who was treated with PulseRider but had post-procedural brainstem infarctions caused by one of the proximal markers covering the origin of a perforator. In such cases, repositioning of the PulseRider should be performed to avoid infarctions.
