Micrus Endovascular recently announced the worldwide market launch of its Presidio
Microcoil product line for the treatment of large cerebral aneurysms. The Presidio
Microcoil is a single, stretch resistant microcoil designed to deliver stable,
predictable aneurysm framing and to increase coverage of the aneurysm wall and
neck with a single coil deployment. The Presidio Microcoil incorporates a bioactive
filament that independent researchers suggest may accelerate the healing process.
These findings were presented in October of this year at the 8th Congress of
the World Federation of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology.
