Abstract

New coils have been designed to preserve the safety of coil embolization while improving on long-term efficacy. There is currently no scientific evidence that one type of coil material is better than another. The recurrence problem may be more pressing in certain types of patients, such as patients with large aneurysms or those already presenting with angiographic recurrences.
