Objective: We report the utility of microcatheter reshaping by referring to fusion images with 3D-DSA and microcatheter 3D images made using non-subtraction and non-contrast (non-SC) rotational images.Case Presentations: Case 1: The patient was a 74-year-old man who had an internal carotid-anterior choroidal artery bifurcation aneurysm with a tortuous proximal parent artery. The initial attempt to introduce the microcatheter into the aneurysm was unsuccessful. During this unsuccessful microcatheter introduction, we created fusion images with 3D-DSA and microcatheter 3D images by acquiring positional information of the microcatheter using the non-SC method. By reshaping the microcatheter with reference to the fusion images, the direction of the distal end of the microcatheter was reshaped to be in accordance with the long axis of the aneurysm, a shape more suitable for coiling. Case 2: The patient was a 47-year-old man who had an anterior communicating (A-com) artery aneurysm with two daughter sacs. We successfully placed two microcatheters in the direction of each sac to make more stable framing by referring to 3D fusion images after the first microcatheter was positioned. In both cases, microcatheter reshaping was necessary because of the vessel and aneurysm anatomy. We have used this technique successfully in 15 patients, for both ruptured and unruptured aneurysms. The average number of microcatheter reshaping was 1.3 times.Conclusion: This method provides effective microcatheter reshaping for coil embolization of aneurysms, particularly those with differences between the axis of the parent artery and the vertical axis of aneurysm, or with a tortuous proximal artery.
