Large aneurysms (more than 25 mm in diameter) or aneurysms in particular positions inside the skull base are defined complex. They are associated with a high risk of subarachnoid or intracranial hemorrhage and neurological deficits. We discuss this particular class of aneurysms which, given their peculiar characteristics, require a complex therapeutic approach, including synergistic treatment with surgical and endovascular modalities.
