The Penumbra Liberty Trial: Safety and Effectiveness in the Treatment of Wide-Neck Intracranial Aneurysms Summary: 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)

Description

The purpose 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).

It is designed to find out if the Penumbra Helix Stent System used in addition to embolic coil devices is better than embolic coils alone in wide-neck, saccular aneurysms. We also need to evaluate the safety (short and long-term) and effectiveness of the Penumbra Helix Stent System.
