Prof. W. Poncyljusz publication comparing the effectiveness of Hydro Coil and MicroPlex in treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms in the 12-month follow-up

European Journal of Radiology published an article by Professor Wojciech Poncyljusz, M.D., Ph.D., comparing the effects of treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms with bare platinum coils and hydrogel coated ones, both manufactured by Microvention, one of our suppliers. A randomized study was conducted, in which complete exclusion of aneurysm after implantation of the Hydro Coil hydrogel coated coil was observed in 84% of patients. In the control group, treated with MicroPlex bare platinum coils, this result was achieved in 76.1% of successful cases. In both cohorts the result was confirmed by angiography at 12 months after implantation. Moreover, the Author pinpoints the lower number of hydrogel coated coils used per case (5,04 in average) than the uncoated ones (6,93 in turn). We invite you to read whole publication.
