Retrieval of a Migrated Coil Using an X6 MERCI Device

Interv Neuroradiol. 2009 Mar 31;15(1):99-102. doi: 10.1177/159101990901500116. Epub 2009 Apr 15.


Coil migration is a recognised but rare complication of endovascular coiling. Many techniques are available commercially for coil retrieval. We report the case of an acute subarachnoid hemorrhage in a 54-year-old woman in which a migrated coil was successfully retrieved using an X6 MERCI device.
