Aims and objectives
Endovascular embolizations are procedures representing part of the daily practice in all Interventional Radiology Departments.
Multiple embolizing agents are available; they can be grouped in three categories: particles,
liquids and metallic devices.
The choice depends usually on three elements: vascular pathology,
and operator preference.
Vascular plugs are definitive metallic devices applied for occluding arterial vessels; recently,
a new detachable microvascular plug (MVP,
USA) has been developed.
This series describes an initial single-center experience on ten patients examining intraprocedural safety and technical success of MVP for embolization of both extracranial and intracranial arterial districts.
