Coils removed before clipping?

I’m curious to know of those people who have had an Annie coiled, then had to have that SAME Annie clipped, if the coils had to be removed first and if it was done at the same time the clipping was done or as a pre-op procedure while still in the hospital?


Are you having this done?

I had an aneurysm coiled in August, 2006. I had two aneurysms clipped in May, 2007. In my case, they left my coils alone and clipped the aneurysm. I have three clips in my head. Two on the aneurysm that was coiled and one on the other. So to answer your question, my coils were not removed. Take care.
