Developing more specialized care for neurological disorders, such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and strokes, can revolutionize patient healthcare and outcomes. With the advent of surgical techniques such as flow diversion, non-stent- and stent-assisted coiling, and catheter embolization for elective aneurysm treatment in neurological patients, the adverse effects and morbidities associated with aneurysms can be reduced. This paper aims to highlight three specific strengths and weaknesses of the newly emerged techniques. Flow diversion devices involve placing a stent in the parent artery, whereas Woven EndoBridge embolization involves manipulation of the wall of the artery without the administration of dual-antiplatelet therapy. In addition to aneurysm treatment, the administration of antiplatelets and anticoagulants is helpful in disrupting the coagulation cascade. As stated in the new and enhanced guidelines released by the American Heart Association, the administration of dual anticoagulants is beneficial to the patients if they have low ischemic severity. Understanding the various benefits and complications associated with each treatment can allow clinicians to gain insight into the potential trajectory of treatment for different patients.
