The HydroCoil Embolic System (HES) comprises a platinum microcoil coated with an expansile polymer and is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for cerebral aneurysm occlusion. We report a series of five cases, two in the internal carotid artery and three in the vertebral artery, in which the HES was used for parent artery occlusion procedures. In each of these cases, the HES allowed rapid, short-segment occlusion.
