Percutaneous embolization was introduced in the mid-‘70s and is now an established therapeutic procedure in current medical practice. With the use of improved imaging techniques, smaller profile catheters and new tools, embolization boundaries are significantly expanded in the last decades. Detachable coils were initially introduced in neuroradiology and are now part of the everyday peripheral embolization armamentarium. Purpose of this review article is to present an overview of the expanded possibilities that this novel material is offering in the field of peripheral embolization procedures.


KEY WORDS: Therapeutic embolization - Angiography - Endovascular procedures
