Brain aneurysm coiling procedures in St. Louis
Endovascular coiling is usually performed by an interventional neuroradiologist with the patient under general anesthesia. The whole procedure is performed under fluoroscopic imaging guidance. A guiding catheter is inserted through the femoral artery and advanced to a site close to the aneurysm after which angiography is performed to localize and assess the aneurysm.
