Abstract
Heparin is commonly used to prevent and treat of thromboembolic events during the endovascular intervention. Rarely, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), which is characterized by moderate thrombocytopenia and paradoxical vascular thromboses, complicates systemic heparinization given during endovacular procedures. We present a case of an endovascular treatement of the anterior communicating artery aneurysm complicated by HIT. This case of HIT manifested thromboembolic event and intracerebral hemorrhage simultaneously.
Key Words: Aneurysm; Endovascular treatment; Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia
