© 2017, Springer Science+Business Media New York and the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE).Purpose: This study was designed to present our preliminary experience with the Roadsaver® double-layer micromesh (DLM) stent in the endovascular treatment of supra-aortic and visceral aneurysms and to utilize the flow-diverting effect of this new design in the treatment of these aneurysms. Methods: DLM stent (Roadsaver®, Terumo, Tokyo, Japan) was used in five patients (median age 61.8 years; three men) for treating arterial aneurysms (one common carotid artery, one vertebral artery V1 segment, one superior mesenteric artery, and two renal artery aneurysms). Results: All stents were successfully deployed. Follow-up imaging with conventional catheter angiography or computed tomography showed successful treatment of all aneurysms. Conclusions: The new DLM stent appears to be promising for the treatment of supra-aortic and visceral aneurysms.
