The doctors at Aster CMI Hospital successfully treated a 55-year-old patient suffering from the severe problem of brain aneurysm and Sub Arachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH), also known as Brain Hemorrhage recently. In a demonstration of path-breaking technology and commitment to save lives, the doctors at the hospital showcased how latest treatment methods in neurosurgery can play an effective role in brain hemorrhage treatment.
Sharma (name changed) was leading a completely normal life unaware of the fact that
he was suffering from an aneurysm in one of the major blood vessels of brain.
He was suffering from severe headaches commonly described as “the worst
headache of your life” and came to doctor with an altered sensorium. His family
had taken him to various neurosurgeons across the city for treatment, but there
was no solution. After imaging was conducted on him, he was diagnosed with SAH
and was referred later to Aster CMI Hospital for treatment.
Brain Angiogram (DSA) showed Blister Aneurysm in one of the major brain blood
vessel (ICA), which is difficult to treat with open brain surgery. After a
detailed case evaluation, the patient was treated by endovascular procedure by
placing a Pipeline Flex Flow Diversion device in the diseased area.
essentially a flow diversion device to treat complex giant aneurysms or blister
aneurysms (in this case) that cannot be treated with a surgical clipping. A
flow diverter seals the affected vessel, allowing the aneurysm to heal and
reducing the risk of rupture,” Dr. Santhosh N U, Consultant, Neurosurgery
& Endovascular Neurosurgery, Aster CMI Hospital explained.
brain aneurysm is a tiny bubble or bulge off the side of an artery on the
brain’s surface. Over a period, due to high blood pressure, use of cigarettes
or due to genetic predisposition, it weakens the arterial wall of an aneurysm
that can become so thin that it bursts, spilling blood over the brain’s
surface. Sub Arachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH) commonly called as Brain Hemorrhage is
the most feared outcome of a brain aneurysm and is what drives the urgency in
treating many brain aneurysms, even if found accidentally. Such cases are very
serious because there is a high chance of another hemorrhage, which can prove
to be fatal. The common symptoms of brain hemorrhage can include sudden and
severe headache, problems with vision, loss of balance or coordination, sudden
tingling, weakness, numbness or paralysis of the face, arm, or leg.
the procedure was conducted, Mr. Sharma exhibited normalcy.
Aster CMI Hospital has a dedicated Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Neurosciences
which offers state-of-the-art treatment facilities to a gross spectrum of
patients – right from infants to senior citizens. The Department combines
expertise in neurology and neuro surgery. The hospital has a multi-disciplinary
team of doctors and offers services with a modern approach involving imaging
equipment and latest technological developments to offer the best clinical
services. Aster CMI’s neurosciences department is among the first to have a
team on call 24/7, to handle all kinds of neurological emergencies, stroke and
