Clipped aneurysm necks appear to be more stable than a coiled rest. Post-mortem studies have shown endothelialization of the thrombus at the neck of a clipped aneurysm. Although this has been demonstrated in some aneurysms that have been coiled, it appears that the neck walls of a coiled aneurysm are held open, rather than being closely applied by the clip, which may prevent or slow the process of endothelializa-tion. This leaves thrombus open to the circulation and may allow enough time for the flow past the aneurysm to compact the coils, with the development of a recurrent aneurysm.
