I very very recently started researching the field of intracranial aneurysms (ICA) and I have this question about that glue or gel that some people talk about.
To me, who I am just learning the basic stuff, it seems that if such a thing goes out to the medical market, then it's game over for the treatment of ICA. And it actually makes sense, according to the coiling principles, that one would think of something more stable throughout time to put into the saccular structure in order to neutralize it.
Assuming of course that such a material be safe for the tissue, and that it have such properties that wouldn't mess with the blood flow, and that would remain stable within the sac, then it seems that the problem of IAC treatment boils down to a problem of biomaterials and chemical engineering.
However, no matter how exciting this might seem, from the almost 182.000 papers on pubmed about aneurysms, there are less than 1000 talking about this method. Likewise, on youtube, the videos regarding such an exciting potential therapy are bizarrely few and most of them were published more than 10 years ago.
