The technique of stent-assisted coil embolization has been widely used in the clinic, while its efficacy and safety have yet to be evaluated. This study investigates the values of computed tomography angiography (CTA), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in evaluating the Enterprise stent-assisted coil embolization in the treatment of intracranial wide-necked aneurysm.A total of 578 intracranial wide-necked aneurysm patients confirmed by MRA + CTA + DSA examinations were included and treated with Enterprise stent-assisted coil embolization in this study. All patients were assigned into complete embolization (CE) group and incomplete embolization (IE) group according to the results of postoperative MRA + CTA + DSA examinations and Raymond grades. Hunt-Hess grades, incidence of complication and Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) grades of patients were investigated to assess the therapeutic effect of Enterprise stent-assisted coil embolization in intracranial wide-necked treatment. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to assess risk factors for the therapeutic effect of Enterprise stent-assisted coil embolization in intracranial wide-necked aneurysm.CTA images offered a better and clearer view than MRA and DSA images in both the CE and IE groups. Both the sensitivity and specificity of CTA were apparently higher than those of MRA. Patients in the CE group enjoyed a higher good GOS rate but a lower incidence of complication than those in the IE group. In Enterprise stent-assisted coil embolization treatment, the Hunt-Hess grade, hypertension, and size of artery aneurysm were independent factors affecting the therapeutic effect of Enterprise stent-assisted coil embolization in intracranial wide-necked aneurysm.Compared with MRA, CTA shows a higher value in evaluating the therapeutic effect of Enterprise stent-assisted coil embolization for the treatment of intracranial wide-necked aneurysm, and can thus serve as an important means of predicting the therapeutic effect of endovascular intervention in treating patients with intracranial wide-necked aneurysm.

The arrangement of two or more amino acid or base sequences from an organism or organisms in such a way as to align areas of the sequences sharing common properties. The degree of relatedness or homology between the sequences is predicted computationally or statistically based on weights assigned to the elements aligned between the sequences. This in turn can serve as a potential indicator of the genetic relatedness between the organisms.
Short sequences (generally about 10 base pairs) of DNA that are complementary to sequences of messenger RNA and allow reverse transcriptases to start copying the adjacent sequences of mRNA. Primers are used extensively in genetic and molecular biology techniques.
