The aim of this study is to report our early clinical experience using C-arm cone beam computed tomography with fluoroscopic overlay for image guidance during percutaneous needle procedures of the spine and pelvis. Twelve consecutive patients (four female and eight male patients; mean age, 64 years; range, 47–74 years; SD ± 7.6 years) who underwent(More)
The effectiveness of a hybrid hydrogel platinum detachable coil (HydroCoil; MicroVention Inc., Tustin, CA) for endovascular aneurysm treatment has been proven in a recently published RCT. Due to technical restrictions (coil stiffness, time restriction for placement), the HydroSoft coil as well as a corresponding 3D framing coil, the HydroFrame coil(More)
Hybrid hydrogel-platinum coils (HydroCoil) have proven effective for endovascular aneurysm treatment. To overcome technical limitations (coil stiffness, time restriction for placement), a second generation of softer hydrogel coils has been brought to clinical practice (HydroSoft, HydroFrame). We report on procedural safety and core-lab-assessed angiographic(More)
