Abstract

A technique utilizing suction decompression of large aneurysms to allow safer application of a clip is described. Large aneurysms are punctured with a No. 21 scalp vein needle attached to the operating room suction device. This procedure causes relaxation of the aneurysm itself and allows safer application of the clip. The technique has been used in six cases of giant aneurysms.
