This result was confirmed with immediate cessation in blood flow and 6-month follow-up angiography. The unique characteristics of the MVP provide potential advantages over current embolic techniques for occlusion of high-flow, fistulous, intracranial vessels such as those seen in the vein of Galen… CONTINUE READING
