Hyderabad, 1st September 2021: Doctors have successfully completed the first intrasaccular flow diversion treatment in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Odisha. This is a new treatment option for brain aneurysm treatment that is otherwise difficult to treat. This is an FDA Approved - latest treatment recommended for Brain Bifurcation Aneurysm.
Brain Aneurysms are bolloing over blood vessels in the brain. Patients who endure brain aneurysms are at risk of the aneurysm growing and eventually rupturing, which may lead to severe bleeding in the brain also known as Brain Haemorrhage leading to death. Brain aneurysms can be treated by Surgical Clipping or Endovascular Methods.
A native of Kakinada, Mrs Subbalakshmi, aged 50, reported a severe headache continuing till neck along with visual disturbances. As she approached the local physician, and underwent an MRI scan, the reports showed the rupture of a Brain aneurysm. The patient had a history of ruptured basilar top aneurysm which was treated at MediCover Hospitals by Dr Dalai 9 months ago with coiling procedure.
So, she was rushed to MediCover Hospitals, Visakhapatnam where she consulted Dr Siba Shankar Dalai, Sr. Consultant Neuro Vascular Intervention, MediCover Hospitals.
Considering the patient's condition and location of the aneurysm, Dr Siba Shankar Dalai decided to perform the 'flow diversion' technique. The intrasaccular flow diversion is the latest technology that offers higher visibility and better placement and importantly increases safety. The technique enables doctors to divert the blood flow away from the aneurysm and to heal the aneurysm progressively.
Dr Siba Shankar Dalai, Sr. Consultant Neuro Vascular Intervention, said that this is the first time Intrasaccular flow diversion used for brain aneurysms treatment in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Odisha. The patient is recovering gradually over 72 to 96 hours and now day 7th she is getting discharged. He stressed that the Flow Diverter stents are proved to be at a great advantage in treating large and complex aneurysms in certain critical areas of the brain and technological advancements like the intrasaccular flow diversion are very helpful.
