Defect Closure — Coil Embolization

  • Jonathan J. Rome
  • Stanton B. Perry


Vascular occlusions may be achieved using a wide variety of methods including device closure, coil embolization, and particulate embolization. For a particular lesion, the optimal closure technique is best determined by considering the anatomy in the context of the specific goals of the occlusion.
