Blood blister-like basilar apex aneurysms are rare thin-walled vascular lesions with a poorly defined aneurysmal neck. We present two patients with ruptured blister aneurysms of the basilar apex who were treated using the stent-in-stent technique. Long-term follow-up showed persistent and complete occlusion of the aneurysms without radiographically or neurological complications. There is no optimal treatment of choice for the basilar apex blood blister-like aneurysms. Double- or triple-stent placement using the stent-in-stent technique can be a safe and feasible option for these uncommon and challenging intracranial aneurysms.
