Title: The 'Embowire' Technique: Concept and Description of a Novel Embolization Technique for Narrow Vessels

We describe a new, useful embolization technique applied to occlude narrow vessel branches ({<=}1.5 mm (0.06 Double-Prime ) in diameter) by deployment of one hydrocoil, through a microcatheter, in a way similar to the way in which one might navigate through the vascular lumen with a guidewire.
