Introduction: A subgroup of complex aneurysms demands multimodal treatment by microscopic and endovascular means. Partial obliteration or remnant postprocedure demands to go further to the other modality. Materials and Methods: All patients between July 2016 and January 2017 who had to undergo multimodality measures for complete obliteration of the aneurysms were included in the study. The patients who had either undergone clipping or coiling for their aneurysms, but with incomplete obliteration of the aneurysm, were also included in the study. Results: Between July 2016 and January 2017, a total of three patients had to undergo coiling after clipping of the aneurysm for complete obliteration. Two patients had to go for clipping following coiling. All five patients had complete obliteration of the aneurysm sac. Conclusion: Both microscopic and endovascular means are complementary measures instead of competing procedures. It is important to realize the technical difficulties when surgical therapy follows initial endovascular treatment. Similarly, coiling a previously clipped aneurysm can be difficult, if the clip obscures normal working projections.
