The purpose of this study was to describe a balloon-assisted double-lumen microcatheter technique to perform a controlled and tight coil packing of a vascular segment for vessel occlusion. This technique can be performed immediately after a test occlusion with the balloon kept in place and was, as illustrated in six cases, in our experience safe, straight forward to use and fast.
