(FEAT) Framing Eighteen Coils in Cerebral Aneurysms Trial


The purpose of this study is to compare angiographic outcomes in patients receiving 0.014-0.0155" platinum framing and filling coils (larger diameter coils) versus those treated solely with coils less than 0.014" (with a standard diameter).

The larger diameter bare platinum coils are FDA-approved and in common use at institutions across the world. Patients will be randomly assigned to either the framing coil treatment or the non-framing coil treatment. Data on each patient will be collected at the time of enrollment and treatment, and at first and second follow-up visits.
