The objective of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Penumbra Liberty Stent System as adjunctive treatment to embolic coils for wide-neck saccular intracranial aneurysms in the internal carotid artery (ICA). The stent differs from existing devices in that it is made of superelastic and biocompatible nitinol tubular material. The research will be conducted as prospective multicenter single arm study. Patients presenting with wide-neck saccular intracranial aneurysms in the internal carotid artery (ICA) from the cavernous segment to the carotid terminus will receive stent assisted coiling by the Penumbra Liberty Stent with any approved embolic coils currently on the market. Each patient will be followed and assessed for 2, 6, and 12 months after enrollment.
