Coil Prolapse: Balloon-Repositioning and Coil Fixation Technique

  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 34-year-old male presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage (Hunt and Hess grade II, Fisher grade III) due to a broad neck basilar top aneurysm (Fig. 46.1a, b). Although both the PCAs were involved, the aneurysm was predominantly committed to the right side and the plan was to do balloon-assisted coiling with remodeling balloon in the right PCA.
