Flexible HydroCoil is based on a technology which is coated with a unique hydro gel that swells in the presence of blood, filling the aneurysm and healing the weakened blood vessel. The embolization relieves the pressure of the blood flow and reduces the possibility of the aneurysm rupturing. Other coils are more rigid and have been found to cause re-occurrence of weakening blood vessels in patients.
