Objective: Endovascular treatments of cerebral aneurysms with bare platinum coils have a higher rate of recurrence compared to surgical clipping. This may be due to the fact that histological and scanning electron microscopical results following embolization failed to demonstrate neoendothelialization[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
