Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Thromboembolic events may occur during or after the treatment of intracranial aneurysms with Guglielmi detachable coils (GDCs). The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of thromboembolic events associated with balloon-assisted coil placement and to investigate possible risk factors for these events during balloon-assisted coil placement and embolization.
