The expert medical team at KIMSHEALTH successfully placed an advanced WEB system inside the cerebral artery of a 51-year-old. He was admitted with severe headache and nausea, brain imaging revealed a large aneurysm, a condition that occurs when there is an abnormal bulging of the blood vessels in the brain. Doctors found out that the severe headache started just after a head injury he had a few months ago. And these symptoms indicated that the aneurysm was in a critical phase of rupture. The patient was duly informed that he had to be treated immediately and the timely, expert endovascular intervention led by Dr. Santhosh Joseph, Senior Consultant, Department of Neuro Interventional Radiology saved the patient without a complex surgical procedure.
An IntraSaccular Flow Diverter (WEB), consisting of a self-expanding mesh ball implant along with a controller was placed in the brain. Inserted from the groin, the WEB system was directed to the intracranial aneurysm sac through the arteries, thereby filling the aneurysm. Then It disrupts the blood flow to the aneurysm, keeping the flow intact within the parent vessel.
Dr. Santhosh Joseph said that these advanced endovascular interventions are really helpful in avoiding complex surgeries so that the patient can resume to normal life at the earliest. Previously this treatment, which requires a high skill set was available only in developed countries and it has only been introduced to India very recently. Dr. Manish Kumar Yadav, Consultant, Department of Neuro Interventional Radiology Imaging & Interventional Radiology, Dr. Dinesh Babu, Consultant, Department of Neuro Interventional Radiology, and Dr. Shalini Varma, Consultant, Department of Anesthesia were also part of the procedure.
