I have been in contact with Dr.Kumpe recently and his method of treatment are as follows: "Coils will likely be the best embolic agent because the strategy is to occlude the fistula(s) precisely at the fistula point, and coils do that best. It might be necessary to add another agent, probably nBCA glue, but I don't think that that will be likely."
What I'm wondering is...
*Has anyone had treatment with coils?
*Was it successful?
*Any treatment following coil embolization?
We also have sent our son's medical records and films for review with Dr.Spetzler in Arizona. Hopefully we hear a review that is in consensus with Dr.Kumpe's one.
