In all cases,
the MVP was successfully released in < 1 min.
In 8 patients,
the MVP was adopted in extracranial arterial vessels,
while in 2 cases,
the carotid syphon was embolized (Table 2).
The clinical scenarios were: 4 active bleedings (Fig.
2 and 3),
2 iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms (Fig.
4 and 5),
1 preoperative vessel occlusion,
3 true aneurysms.
In 6 patients,
the MVP was the primary and sole embolizing agent employed; in 4 subjects,
the MVP was positioned complementary after coils to definitely seal the target artery just proximally to the lesion.
The technical and clinical success was obtained in 100%; hemorrhages were interrupted while at follow-up (2 weeks - 10 monthes) aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms did not show recanalization neither MVP migration was detected.
