However, intraprocedural rupture remains an endangering event given the extremely fragile wall of these lesions. Retrograde filling and rupture of the lesion may still occur after proximal coil occlusion. Therefore, the use of liquid embolic agents with parent vessel sacrifice is commonly required in order to achieve a definite therapeutic response. We now report on our initial experience with Onyx (ev3 Neurovascular, Irvine, California, USA) in …
