PMID:  7315565     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
By means of a case report a shortcoming of balloon catheter techniques for intravascular occlusion of CCF is demonstrated: the procedure by which the balloon is detached from the filling catheter is unreliable and may further traumatise the vessel wall. We describe a new technique that allows careful, gentle, and effortless detachment of the balloon by means of a melting-off technic.
