dc.abstract.en BACKGROUND: Hydrogel coils were created to improve the chances of an effective endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms. Achieving a high packing density of coils in the lumen of aneurysms can decrease the risk of recurrence. The aim of the present study is to report our initial experience on the effectiveness and safety of endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms with the use hydrogel coils. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Sixty patients (age: 28-72 years) (45 women, 15 men) were treated. In 18 patients (30%), subarachnoid hemorrhage was present. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) of cerebral vessels with rotational scanning was performed. Image analysis was performed by the Philips Integris 3D RA device,which is a specialized workstation (Three-Dimensional Rotational Angiography). 3D reconstructions of cerebral arteries were created based on the data. Sixty-six cerebral aneurysms were embolized with hydrogel coils, which expand in contact with blood. reaching the maximum diameter in about 20 minutes. In 29 aneurysms (43.9%), the effect of the procedure was confirmed on a follow-up DSA after 8.0±4.1 months from the initial treatment. RESULTS: A complete embolization was performed in 55 aneurysms (83.3%), and partial embolization in 11 aneurysms (16.7%). In 6 aneurysms (9.1%), re-embolization was necessary and it resulted in a complete embolization of 5 aneurysms. On a follow-up DSA, complete embolization was present in 25 aneurysms (86.2%), and partial embolization in 4 aneurysms (13.8%), respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Endovascular embolization with hydrogel coils is an effective and safe treatment method for cerebral aneurysms, although it carries the risk of some complications. pl
