Abstract

Background: A hybrid guide catheter mates the traditional strong guide catheter with a thin, soft distal tip, allowing placement further into the distal cervical or proximal cranial circulation. Case Description: We present 5 cases in which traditional guide catheters were unable to successfully navigate tortuous anatomy or provide stable support for intervention. Conclusion: Hybrid guide catheters provided safe, stable support for successful treatment. Hybrid guide catheters allow for treatment for patients who previously were not candidates for neuroendovascular surgery.
