Treatment of elastase-induced intracranial aneurysms in New Zealand white rabbits by use of a novel neurovascular embolization stent device.
INTRODUCTION: This study aims to test a novel balloon expandable stent covered with a polytetrafluoroethylene membrane (neurovascular embolization cover (NEC), NFocus Neuromedical, Palo Alto, California) regarding angiographic and histologic aneurysm occlusion. Radiopacity, stent placement, navigation, flexibility, and intimal proliferation were also evaluated. METHODS: Eight aneurysms were induced in New Zealand white rabbits. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) was performed directly afte...Expand abstract
