The endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms has recently become an established therapeutic option. The foundation of this treatment modality was laid by the work done in ground-breaking cases, combined with technological advances since the first half of the 19th century. In this historical overview the authors describe the steps taken by the early pioneers and the results of their work, which was often done under challenging circumstances. The work of these predecessors established the stepping-stones for constant development and refinement for those who have come after them, eventually evolving into the procedures used today. Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms is only possible because of the work of these innovators.
