I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later?  I'm 44 and concerned

Isolated celiac: artery aneurysm is a rare condition. You should be happy that embolization was successful. I don't think you will suffer any remote complications from the procedure itself. Major concern would be development of any other aneurysms in other parts of your body, such as brain or any genetic defect. It seems unlikely that this celiac artery aneurysm was caused by atherosclerosis. ...Read more

20 months ago coiled aneurysm. I am worried about electrodes being placed on my head for retina angiogram test incase it affects my platinum coils. ?

20 months ago coiled aneurysm. I am worried about electrodes being placed on my head for retina angiogram test incase it affects my platinum coils. ?

No effect: I am guessing you are being tested for retinal function. This will involve flashing lights and electrodes to pick up the signal. An alternative test is for nerve transmission with flashing lights and electrodes on the back of the head. Neither of these tests will interact with your platinum coils. Enjoy the flashing lights. ...Read more
