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.
