Evaluation of the characteristics of various types of finishing coils for the embolization of intracranial aneurysms in an experimental model with radiolucent coils.


In endovascular coil embolization of intracranial aneurysms, very soft coils, often called "finishing coils," are usually selected in the final stage of coil embolization. The authors developed a radiolucent coil made of thin nylon thread to evaluate the performance of coils under a situation simulating the course of embolization. The characteristics of… (More)
