Coil Migration During Coiling: Retrieval by Snare

  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 48-year-old female presented with a history of subarachnoid haemorrhage along with haematoma in the right medial temporal lobe 1 year ago. No investigations were performed then. She now had a re-bleed due to a right posterior communicating artery aneurysm (Fig. 48.1). The aneurysm sac was bilobed and coiling was planned.
