Coil embolization of a large, wide-necked aneurysm using a double coil-delivered microcatheter technique in combination with a balloon-assisted technique

Neurol Res. 1999 Apr;21(3):324-6. doi: 10.1080/01616412.1999.11740939.

Abstract

The present paper describes a double coil-delivered microcatheter technique used in combination with a balloon-assisted technique to treat a patient with a large, wide-necked basilar tip aneurysm with detachable coil treatment. The aneurysm was completely occluded using this technique. There was no recanalization or any neurological deterioration within 12 months of embolization.
