Abstract

A prototype 0.018 pushable fibered microcoil with an extended length of 14 cm was developed and used successfully for the first time to treat a patient with bilateral varicocele. This new coil provides immediate cross-sectional occlusion when "nested" into a densely packed coil mass. Potential uses of this new microcoil are discussed.
