Dual-lumen balloon catheters may improve liquid embolization of vascular malformations: an experimental study in Swine.


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Liquid embolic agents are increasingly used to treat vascular malformations. We sought to assess embolization with these agents by using a dual-lumen balloon catheter in an experimental setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighteen injections of liquid embolic agents were performed in the rete mirabile of swine. We used 3 methods to… (More)
