In the early 1990's, endovascular treatment using embolic coils for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms was established. Since then, there has been a significant body of peer-reviewed literature written by medical experts regarding the use, safety, and efficacy of these detachable embolic coils. With the publishing of the ISAT (Intracranial Subarachnoid Aneurysm Trial) trial data in 2005, which compared clinical outcomes of neurosurgical clipping and endovascular coiling, embolic coiling became the preferred method for treatment of the majority of unruptured intracranial aneurysms 1).
