Abstract

The introduction of the detachable balloon technique by Serbinenko in 1974 [6] and by Debrun in 1975 [1] opened the way toward the endosaccular treatment of aneurysms [2, 3, 7]. To date the most extensive experience regarding this therapeutic approach has been published by Romodanov in 1982 [5], However, multiple obstacles have slowed down applications of the technique: The detachment system in association with the valve mechanism [4] at the balloon neck had to be mode “softer” and more reliable. The flexibility and the navigation control of the catheter had to be improved in order to allow access to aneurysms at the circle of Willis or beyond.
