Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms with a new silicone microballoon device: technical considerations and indications for therapy.

Abstract

Treatment of complex intracranial aneurysms by means of interventional neurovascular techniques is now being performed with a newly developed silicone detachable-microballoon device. The balloon is composed of unique silicone elastomers that are extremely soft and malleable. It therefore conforms to the blood vessel lumen or aneurysm wall and reduces the… (More)
