Groundbreaking Treatment: First Use of i-ED Coil® System in Northern California 

By November 30, 2022May 22nd, 2023No Comments

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone at our practice. Dr. Benjamin Yim recently performed the first aneurysm embolization in Northern California and the Bay Area using the innovative i-ED Coil® System from Kaneka Corporation. This state-of-the-art neuroendovascular tool has revolutionized the treatment of cerebrovascular diseases, enhancing the safety and efficacy of our procedures.

In this groundbreaking case, Dr. Yim achieved an impressive 49% packing density using just three i-ED coils. This is an incredible achievement, underscoring the efficacy and precision of these coils in treating cerebrovascular conditions.

The Kaneka i-ED Coil® System offers several advantages over traditional neuroendovascular coils:

  1. Higher Packing Density: The i-ED Coil® System allows for a higher packing density, which can lead to better aneurysm occlusion and potentially lower recurrence rates.
  2. Controlled Deployment: The i-ED Coil® System offers superior control during deployment, making it easier for neurosurgeons to precisely place the coils.
  3. Versatility: The i-ED Coil® System includes a range of coil sizes and types, providing more flexibility in treating different types and sizes of aneurysms.
  4. Enhanced Visibility: The i-ED Coil® System offers enhanced visibility under fluoroscopy, which can improve the safety and accuracy of the procedure.

At our practice, we are committed to providing our patients with the most advanced and effective treatment options. The introduction of the i-ED Coil® System is a testament to this commitment at East Bay Brain and Spine. If you or a loved one are facing a cerebrovascular condition and would like to explore your treatment options, please contact our practice to schedule a consultation with Dr. Yim.

We look forward to continuing to serve our community with cutting-edge neurosurgical care.
