Abstract

Aneurysm embolization using Guglielmi detachable coils(GDC) is gaining acceptance as a viable alternative to surgery in the treatment of cerebral aneurysms. During GDC treatment of cerebral aneurysms, thromboembolic events are the most frequent complications. As risk factors of thromboembolic events, large aneurysms, wide-necked aneurysms, use of the balloon-assisted technique and protruding coils into the parent arteries are previously reported. From March, 1997 till August, 2004, 270 consecutive patients were treated with GDC embolization at our institute. Fourteen (5.2%) patients with 14 aneurysms of these 270 patients presented with protruding coils into the parent vessels
