Effective Treatment for Brain Aneurysm

An Artery supplies blood to every organ. When it supplies to the brain, the walls of arteries becomes bulged and weakened, that is called brain aneurysm. In most of the cases, a brain aneurysm does not cause any specific symptoms until it ruptures. In rare cases, when the brain aneurysm ruptures, blood releases in the skull and causes a stroke.

It is an endovascular coiling technique, where placing a device in the parent blood vessel to divert the blood flow away from an aneurysm instead of placing the device inside the aneurysm sac.

How is the Flow Diversion Performed ?

Flow diversion, is otherwise called as Pipeline procedure which does not involve a craniotomy. This minimally invasive procedure is done under anesthesia. The surgeon inserts a microcatheter in the leg, and it goes through the blood vessels. The catheter end is loaded with a stent. The surgeon positions the stent inside the blood vessel of the aneurysm without touching the aneurysm. Soon after placing, the stent which causes the blood flow is immediately rerouted. Finally, the neurosurgeon removes the catheter and monitors the stent position by watching the blood flow. Once the blood flow to the aneurysms is reduced, then the complete aneurysm closure occurs between 6 weeks to 6 months. The surgical team monitors the patient carefully for next 24 months, whether the new cells rebuild the blood vessel where an aneurysm occurred.
When an aneurysm ruptures, the patient will feel pain, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, hypotension, tachycardia, seizures, sensitivity to light, and pain in neck.

Causes for A Brain Aneurysm
It mostly occurs, when the wall of the brain blood vessel is weakened.  The risk factors which might increase the occurrences of an aneurysm are smoking, stress, and hypertension. The previous histories of aneurysm are family history, age, head injury, and alcohol consumption.
