Quantitative Effects of Coil Packing Density on Cerebral Aneurysm Fluid Dynamics: An In Vitro Steady Flow Study

Abstract

Over the past 15 years, coil embolization has emerged as an effective treatment option for cerebral aneurysms that is far less invasive than the long-standing convention of surgical clipping. However, aneurysm recurrence after coil embolization is not uncommon: recurrence rates as high as 50% have been reported in the literature. One factor that may… (More)
