Endovascular coiling was introduced by Guido Guglielmi at UCLA in 1991.

was told it went well....my main problem is lack of after support..so am looking for that.

Not Working
Sweats, nauses, really bad migraines headaches, body ache, can't hear or see. couldn't remember where I was.
Not Working
The coiling "worked" for several years, but now it is bulging and I have to go in for a clip.
Not Working
the coil was done last summer. 4 days later I suffered a 7 hour seizer that wouldnt stop. I am still not really with it all the time. Life has been very hard
