Introduction. Cerebrovascular accidents are the third leading cause of death in developed countries. It is a very debilitating disease of the brain structures in which aneurysms are located. For a long time, the only method of treating intracranial aneurysms was surgery. However, mainly due to the difficult placement of the aneurysms, surgical treatment was very difficult. Therefore, in 1953, the method of percutaneous arterial catheterization was developed, which became the basis for the improvement of the field of interventional radiology. Aim. The aim of the research is to describe the method of embolization of intracranial aneurysms and to illustrate it in selected clinical cases. Description of the case. Surgical management of a 60-year-old woman with intracranial aneurysm of the anterior communicating artery after performing computed tomography with contrast. Conclusion. The method of embolization of intracranial aneurysms is a reliable and accurate surgical method that significantly improves the health condition, quality of life of patients and reduces the mortality rate of cerebrovascular events.
