Optimal first coil selection to avoid aneurysmal recanalization in endovascular intracranial aneurysmal coiling

Key points: Coiling, simple or balloon-/stent-assisted, is an endosaccular technique of treatment and a long-term follow-up is mandatory: the problem of aneurysmal recanalization remains and according to a systematic review, recanalization occurs in 20.8% of patients. The volume embolization ratio (VER) has recently been reported to be associated with aneurysmal recanalization. It is a general Read more about Optimal first coil selection to avoid aneurysmal recanalization in endovascular intracranial aneurysmal coiling[…]

Closing the gap between coil and balloon in the neurointerventional armamentarium? Initial clinical experience with a nitinol vascular occlusion plug

Gralla J1, Schroth G, Kickuth R, El-Koussy M, Do DD, Brekenfeld C.   Pubmed INTRODUCTION: The use of vascular plug devices for the occlusion of high-flow lesions is a relatively new and successful procedure in peripheral and cardiopulmonary interventions. We report on the use and efficiency of the Amplatzer vascular plug in a small clinical Read more about Closing the gap between coil and balloon in the neurointerventional armamentarium?
