Interventional radiologic techniques with trans-arterially deployed detachable balloon
embolization and maintenance of patent ICA is the gold standard in managing traumatic CCF (Close hole, keep artery open), but in some cases carotid sacrifice may be needed to occlude the fistula.
Occlusion of direct CCFs with a detachable balloon
is widely preferred.
8,9 Our study found that six cases of CCF had been successfully treated with transcatheter detachable balloon
Use of a detachable balloon
would have been better suited in this case, owing to the tortuosity of the dysplastic right vertebral artery allowing better passage of the delivery system; however, detachable balloons
were not available at our institution at the time of this procedure.
Endovascular detachable balloon
embolization therapy of cavernous carotid artery aneurysms: results in 87 cases.
4) Similarly, other authors have described balloon test occlusion followed by detachable balloon
embolization or vessel ligation for these patients.
There are a variety of surgical methods of repairing cerebral aneurysms, including surgical clipping and detachable balloon
In one of these patients the detachable balloon
deflated after 2 hours of deployment and another session of embolization was immediately carried out by deploying a larger sized balloon.
Here we describe a case of CAF treated with a detachable balloon
Percutaneous LIMA graft occlusion can be achieved antegradely using coils, detachable balloons
and vascular plug devices or the LIMA graft can be occluded retrogradely by deploying a covered stent in the cardiac vein at the site of the LIMA anastomosis.
1,2,5) Transcatheter embolotherapy with stainless steel coils or detachable balloons
is most commonly performed.
In the past, endovascular occlusion using detachable balloons
was a common treatment for this condition.
