Risk of death at five years is lower for aneurysm patients treated with coil embolization compared to surgical clipping

At five years post-treatment, 14 percent of surgically clipped patients had died compared to 11 percent of patients treated with endovascular coiling, representing a 23 percent relative reduction in risk of death for coiled patients. The percentage of patients characterized as independent in their daily activities at five years post-treatment was similar for both groups (82 percent for coiling versus 81 percent for clipping).

"The recently published ISAT data are reassuring to both patients and physicians," said Dr. Molyneux, Principal Investigator for ISAT.
