Abstract

Precipitating hydrophobic injectable liquid is a new liquid embolic agent used mainly for intracranial neurointervention. The agent is ready to use (no shaking is required), since iodine, the radiopaque material, is covalently bonded into the compound. Additionally, due to the absence of tantalum, minimal artifacts are seen on postprocedure follow-up CT scans, and the agent penetrates into vessels smaller than 10 ┬Ám. The authors report their initial experience with the use of this agent in neurovascular intervention.
