Aneurysms located in the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) are not a majority of the intracranial aneurysms cases. Many challenges were addressed in the endovascular procedure to treat the disease. The authors have successfully diagnosed and treated a ruptured proximal PICA aneurysm. However, digital subtraction angiography showed acute thrombosis in the vertebral artery in the procedure, which probably could be an acute in-stent thrombosis. The tirofiban hydrochloride injection was subjected through a microcatheter, and then, the second Neuroform EZ stent was planted. In the 6-month follow-up, no recurrence of the aneurysm and complete patency of the right PICA at the site of aneurysm formation were found. We believe that the treatment of PICA aneurysms with Neuroform EZ stents could get a favorable result. Combination of tirofiban hydrochloride and Neuroform EZ stent could be an effective approach in treating acute thrombotic complications.
