Objectives: Endovascular occlusion of blood vessels represents a key component of interventional therapy. While coils are most commonly used, vessel occlusion is generally not achieved immediately and may necessitate a large number of devices. It has been suggested that endovascular plugs may overcome these limitations; however, immediate and durable occlusion ...
