BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Thromboembolic events after aneurysm coiling are common, but the optimal algorithm for emboli prevention remains unclear. MESs correlate with the occurrence of impending ischemic events and may be used for management guidance. This study reports the use of MES monitoring with regard to aneurysm characteristics and coiling technique after a specific anticoagulation protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed 123 consecutive, elective endovascular procedures. Patients… CONTINUE READING
