Objective: Our scientific paper is aimed at describing multimodal treatment of intracranial aneurysms represented by microsurgery and endovascular therapy. Patients, Materials and Methods: We report four cases of intracranial aneurysms treated in our Department of Neurosurgery by microsurgery (clipping) and endovascular treatment (coiling), through the joint efforts of a team of highly skilled neurosurgeons. Results: Mixed treatment has been imposed by the complications we were presented with, resulting from either of the two surgical methods employed. Conclusions: Although endovascular surgery is considered a newer treatment method, favored by many practitioners, and preferred by patients, there are situations where open surgery is still required. There are certain situations were using one of the surgical methods fails and a complementary procedure is required for a secure and successful treatment. The cases reported here will demonstrate the utility of combining the two procedures.
