AIM: Ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH), its organic solvent dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and N-Butyl 2-Cyanoacrylate (NBCA) are widely used in neurovascular embolization procedures and yet with potential risk of cytotoxicity.The aim of this study was to evaluate the toxic effect of EVOH-DMSO, its solvent DMSO and NBCA on cerebral parenchyma in a rabbit model.
