AbstractBackground and Objective:
FRED (Flow Re-direction Endoluminal Device, Microvention/Terumo) is a second generation dual layer flow diverting stent for the treatment of intracranial aneurysm. We aimed to review the experience in a regional hospital in Hong Kong under a new antiplatelet alone protocol.

Methods:
We retrospectively reviewed all patients with intracranial aneurysms treated with FRED under a new antiplatelet alone protocol in Prince of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong.

Results:
Twenty patients with fusiform or saccular aneurysms were included. Four patients had previous coil embolization for ruptured aneurysm with radiological recurrence and two patients had previous Neuroform stent-assisted embolization. Two patients were treated during the acute phase of subarachnoid hemorrhage. All patients were able to have FRED deployed for aneurysm treatment. At 12 months, 77% of aneurysms had complete occlusion and 8% of aneurysm had near complete occlusion. Both of the 2 aneurysms covered with overlapping FRED achieved complete occlusion at 12 months. There were no procedure or post-operative stroke or hemorrhage up to last follow up.

Conclusions:
FRED treatment was safe and feasible. The complete occlusion or near complete occlusion were achieved in 85% of aneurysms at 12 months after FRED treatment for intracranial aneurysm. FRED treatment was safe and feasible in all patients in our study.
