Technical advancements made in the field of neuro interventions have provided better and safer treatment options for patients suffering from an aneurysm, a serious condition, where the blood vessels in the brain form a balloon-shaped structure.
This condition can be life-threatening if left untreated, as the bulging can rupture anytime and cause bleeding inside the brain. The condition is usually symptomized with severe frequent headaches and blurred vision but sometimes remains silent until the weak spot of the bulge explodes causing bleeding known as subarachnoid hemorrhage.
“Advanced The endovascular coiling method is a minimally invasive approach to treat this condition improving the quality of life of the patient. This method is highly safe and involves no scars and highly efficient in preventing brain bleeding. While the procedure takes only 2-3 hours for its completion, the hospital stay may vary depending upon the condition the patient was admitted in. The patient may be monitored for complete recovery in case the coiling was done post rupture and patients undergoing the procedure before rupture may be discharged within 2 days.” Said Dr. Chandril Chugh, Senior Consultant, and Head, interventional Neurology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket
Not all aneurysms require treatment. The treatment depends on the size, site, and anatomy of an aneurysm. The aneurysm is a weak spot in the blood vessel that expands into a balloon-shaped structure over a period of time. It can occur anywhere in the body but mostly affects blood vessels in the brain usually discovered during image testing. But brain aneurysms with ruptured ones require immediate medical attention. The condition usually comes with a sudden, severe headache and sometimes the patient becomes unconscious and may even result in death.
“Endovascular coining is a highly efficient way of treating all types of brain aneurysms, not only saving the patient’s life but also improving their quality of life. The procedure involves inserting a micro-catheter with a coil attached to its tip to the site of the aneurysm, and seals the opening of the affected area permanently. In comparison to other conventional methods like clipping or open surgeries, this procedure is highly precise, safe with better outcomes.” Added Dr. Chugh
Brain aneurysm is not a genetic disorder and in most of the cases, it is not recommended that family members are screened. But some cases where there is a family history of this serious ailment. It is recommended to consult with a specialist interventional Neurologist at regular intervals.
