Microsurgical treatment is well established as the preferred strategy for definitive obliteration of middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms. However, increasing reports on the feasibility and efficacy of endovascular treatment of MCA aneurysms in large case series suggest coiling as a viable alternative to microsurgery. This review provides a critical overview of the current literature regarding MCA aneurysm treatment, with the objective to clarify the available evidence of efficacy with microsurgical compared to endovascular treatment.
