This problem was addressed by the introduction of mechanically detachable37,38 and electrolytically detachable39–42 coils. First described by Guglielmi et al40,42 for the experimental treatment of cerebrovascular lesions, electrolytically detachable coils were favored by clinical interventionists because of concerns about the forces applied within the aneurysm for detachment of mechanically detachable coils. The design of the Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC; Boston Scientific/ Target, Fremont, CA) combines the advantages of soft compliant platinum, retrievability (a coil can be withdrawn, repositioned, or replaced before detachment), and atraumatic detachment.
