Endovascular embolization can treat many conditions, including:

  • Brain aneurysm —a weakened blood vessel in the brain that collects blood and can bleed
  • Vascular malformations —abnormal connections between arteries and veins (usually present at birth)
  • Tumors

The procedure can be used alone or with other treatments. It will not fix damaged areas of the brain, but it can improve quality of life by stopping bleeding or preventing rupture.
