Objective: To assess a novel embolisation material in experimental aneurysms whereby intra-arterial administration of magnetic nanoparticles are navigated into the lumen of vascular aneurysms with assistance from an external magnetic field. Methods: A magnetically steerable substance (Magseal, APG[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
