Abstract

Data from our clinical series and others supports the idea that endovascular coil embolization is a reliable form of treatment for both ruptured and unruptured cerebral aneurysms. This form of treatment appears from preliminary data to be protective against subarachnoid hemorrhage. Although not likely to replace open surgery, the continued advancements in technology and supportive clinical data will allow endovascular therapy to become a more durable mode of treatment.
