Endovascular Coiling

Endovascular coiling, also known as endovascular aneurysm coiling or coil embolization, is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat brain aneurysms. During the procedure, our skilled interventional neuroradiologists insert a catheter into the blood vessels, typically through an artery in the groin, and navigate it to the site of the aneurysm in the brain. Soft, platinum coils are then placed within the aneurysm, filling the space and promoting clot formation, ultimately sealing off the aneurysm from the circulation.

How Does Endovascular Coiling Work?

Endovascular coiling works by disrupting the blood flow into the aneurysm, which reduces the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. The coils are carefully selected and positioned within the aneurysm under precise guidance from advanced imaging technology. Over time, the coils encourage the formation of a stable clot, effectively sealing off the aneurysm and preventing further complications.

Benefits of Endovascular Coiling

  • Reduced Risk of Rupture: Endovascular coiling helps reduce the risk of rupture and hemorrhage by sealing off the aneurysm and preventing further blood flow into the weakened vessel wall.
  • Minimally Invasive: Endovascular coiling is performed through small incisions, resulting in shorter recovery times, less discomfort, and lower risk of complications compared to traditional surgical approaches.
  • Preservation of Brain Function: Endovascular coiling helps preserve neurological function by preventing further damage caused by aneurysm rupture and hemorrhage.
  • Customized Treatment: Our team tailors each endovascular coiling procedure to the individual patient, taking into account the size, location, and characteristics of the aneurysm to achieve the best possible outcome.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced neurovascular team. Together, we can explore your treatment options and develop a plan to address your specific needs and goals.
