BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We report our experience using Matrix coils in coiling of cerebral aneurysms. METHODS Clinical and angiographic outcomes of 152 patients (165 aneurysms) treated exclusively with Matrix coils were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS There were 74 ruptured aneurysms (44.8%) and 91 unruptured (55.2%). After coiling, 84 (50.9%) aneurysms were occluded, 38 (23.0%) aneurysms had a neck remnant, and 43 (26.1%) aneurysms had a sac remnant. Packing ranged from 10% to 49% (mean… CONTINUE READING
