OBJECTIVE The purpose of our experimental study was to determine the effectiveness of filling the cavity of in vitro aneurysms with detachable platinum coils and the combination of detachable platinum coils and liquid embolic agent. MATERIALS AND METHODS Silicone aneurysm models were connected to a circulatory system to simulate arterial flow. A microcatheter was used to introduce detachable coils into the aneurysm cavities. First, platinum coils were introduced until the point of minimal… CONTINUE READING
