I just had endocascular coiling done on my aneurysm, and undone. They went in and coiled it and then when they deflated the balloon supporting it during the procedure, my doctor realized the coiling would disrupt the flow of blood in the artery to the side which would eventually lead to a stroke, so he undid the coiling. It's frustrating to have gone through the whole experience and not have my aneurysm fixed, but at least there were no negative side effects.
