EMBOLD™ Detachable Coil System case study

AVM treated with EMBOLD™ Fibered Coils

In this case study, we explore the treatment of bilateral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) using Embold™ Fibered Coils. The patient initially presented to the emergency room with multiple right-sided AVMs, prompting intervention. The medical team treated the right-sided AVMs and scheduled future procedures to address the left-sided AVM. Employing an 8 F guiding catheter, a 4 F diagnostic catheter, and a Direxion HI-FLO™ Microcatheter, the team navigated the left-sided AVM. Two 14 mm Embold Fibered Coils were positioned within the 11 mm nidus, accompanied by the placement of 10 mm and 8 mm coils within the feeding vessel. The AVM was successfully embolized.
