Aneurysm Coiling and Stenting

Endovascular Coiling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves placing coils inside the aneurysm through a catheter threaded via an artery in the groin/arm, so that blood can no longer flow into the aneurysm preventing rupture or further bleeding.

Endovascular Stenting involves diverting blood flow away from the site of the aneurysm to prevent rupture in the future, or stop bleeding. This procedure is especially useful in an emergency, wherein it is too dangerous to reach the aneurysm for clipping via open surgery.
