If there was no bleeding before the procedure, you may need to stay in the hospital for 1 - 2 days.
If bleeding occured, your hospital stay will be longer.
How fast you recover depends on your overall health, the severity of your medical condition, and other factors.
In most cases, endovascular embolization is a successful procedure with good outcomes.
The outlook also depends on any brain damage that occurred from bleeding before, during, or after the surgery.
