Endovascular management of narrow-necked aneurysms has traditionally been with coil embolization; however, wide-necked aneurysms have been more difficult to treat due to risk of distal coil migration or intrusion into a parent vessel. We describe the case of a 76-year-old female who presented with a left-sided renal artery aneurysm and 11 mm aneurysm neck. Renal arteriography of the superior pole branch was performed, lower pole was stented, and a retrievable stent was placed in the inferior branch for the purpose of stent-assisted coiling. Penumbra detachable coils were deposited through the stent struts to jail them in with successful embolization of the aneurysm. Endovascular treatment of wide-neck renal artery aneurysms has the potential to be a successful treatment alternative in patients where surgical intervention is contraindicated. Additional studies should be performed to determine the versatility and extent of success in coil embolization for wide-neck aneurysms.
