Cerebral Coil Embolization for the Treatment of Intracranial Vascular Abnormalities

What is Cerebral Coil Embolization?

Cerebral coil embolization is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat intracranial vascular abnormalities such as aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. This procedure involves inserting tiny coils or mesh devices into the abnormal blood vessels to block blood flow and prevent potential complications such as hemorrhage or stroke.

How Does Cerebral Coil Embolization Work?

During cerebral coil embolization, a catheter is inserted into an artery, usually through the groin, and advanced to the location of the vascular abnormality in the brain. Through this catheter, the coils are then deployed into the abnormal blood vessel, causing it to clot and eventually shrink in size. This helps to prevent the risk of rupture and associated complications.

The Benefits of Cerebral Coil Embolization

Cerebral coil embolization offers several advantages over traditional open surgical techniques for treating intracranial vascular abnormalities. These include a shorter recovery time, reduced risk of complications, and minimal scarring. Additionally, this minimally invasive procedure can often be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to return to their normal activities sooner.
