What is Endovascular Coiling?

Endovascular coiling, also called coiling or endovascular embolization, is a surgical procedure to block blood flow into an aneurysm (bulging, weak area in an artery wall). A coiling procedure may be performed to treat an unruptured and ruptured brain aneurysm. Brain aneurysmis a condition referred to  a bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain.  A brain aneurysm can leak or rupture, causing bleeding into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke)

Symptoms of Brain Aneurysm are:

  • Sudden, extremely severe headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Stiff neck
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Seizure
  • A drooping eyelid
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Confusion

During endovascular coiling surgery, a catheter is inserted through the groin up into the artery containing the aneurysm. Platinum coils are then released. The coils induce clotting (embolization) of the aneurysm and, in this way, prevent blood from getting inside of it.
