Introduction: Aneurysm location is known to affect the success of coil embolization. We retrospectively evaluated the affect of aneurysm location on initial occlusion rates and stability of aneurysm occlusion in patients treated with detachable microcoil embolization.

Method: We reviewed the angiograms of 205 patients who harbored 221 aneurysms that were treated with microcoil embolization between August 2002 and September 2008. Aneurysm occlusion was assessed on the initial and follow-up angiograms when available. Occlusion of the aneurysm …
