Background: Low-profile, self-expandable stents are used to treat wide-neck aneurysms located on the smaller distal intracranial arteries. This study aimed to assess the usefulness of time-of-flight (TOF) and contrast-enhanced (CE) magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) for follow-up after LEO Baby stent (LBS)-assisted coil embolization.
