Neuroendovascular Surgery Patient Education: Ruptured Aneurysm Causing Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

Neuroendovascular surgery (NES) is an innovative, minimally-invasive surgical treatment for complex brain and spinal cord vascular diseases that is performed from inside the blood vessels.

Ruptured Aneurysm: Pre-coiling Compared to Post-coiling

 

Note that in the post-coiling image, the aneurysm is not seen, only blood vessels. This demonstrates the coils completely fill the aneurysm. No blood is entering the coiled aneurysm.
