OBJECT The HydroCoil embolization system is a helical platinum coil coated with a polymeric hydrogel that expands when it contacts aqueous solutions to increase filling volumes, improve mesh stability, and possibly elicit a healing response within the aneurysm. In this paper, the authors report the 1-year recurrence and complication rates of 67 aneurysms embolized with the HydroCoil system. METHODS Sixty-four consecutive patients (67 total aneurysms) with small (< or =7 mm), large (8-15 mm… CONTINUE READING
