Abstract

Background Lateral/radial forces and the mechanical properties of Woven EndoBridge (WEB) devices have significant importance for therapeutic success. In other words, adequate apposition of the lateral wall of a cerebral aneurysm is critical for preventing recurrence or re-rupture risk. Objective This study aimed to investigate the pressure values applied by different WEB devices to the lateral walls of aneurysms and the relationships between these pressure measurements and the diameters of WEB devices. Methods By placing four WEB devices of different sizes and types between two rigid metal plates, the lateral forces applied by these WEB devices to plates of different apertures were measured quantitatively. We tested a single device of each size over multiple periods. The total number of examined WEB devices is four. Results There was a significant negative relationship between plate distances and pressure values (correlation coefficient:–0.956, p = 0.000). The lateral wall apposition pressure of a 4- or 5-mm aperture size was higher than a 6-mm aperture size for SL-type WEB devices with a 7-mm diameter. Similarly, the lateral wall apposition pressure detected for a 3- or 3.5-mm aperture size was higher than a 4-mm aperture size for W5-4.5-3 and W5-5-3.6. It was observed that maximum lateral wall pressure was detected in plate measurements of SLS-type devices compared to SL-type devices. The diameter and height values of 3 of the 4 unconstrained WEB devices analyzed differed from the catalog values. Conclusion It seems that SLS-type devices apply more pressure on the aneurysm's lateral borders than SL-type devices.
