Exteriorization and control of a retained embolization coil in the carotid artery--a case report



Exteriorization and control of a retained embolization coil in the carotid artery--a case report



Vascular and Endovascular Surgery 39(2): 195-198



Advances in endovascular technology have enabled the development of complex techniques for the treatment of vascular conditions. Not surprisingly, the modern vascular surgeon will likely encounter unusual complications and will need to formulate plans for their management. In the current case report, the vascular surgery service was consulted to assist in the management of a retained embolization coil in the carotid artery. Relevant aspects of detachable coils are discussed and the successful management of this potentially hazardous complication is described.
