Endovascular Aneurysm Coiling

A neurosurgeon with special training threads a catheter into the affected cerebral vessel and positions a microcatheter inside the aneurysm. This give him the ability to treat the disease from inside the blood vessel. Small platinum coils are placed to redirect the flow of blood away from the aneurysm. Small platinum coils are placed into the aneurysm to redirect blood flow to prevent a potential rupture or in some cases, to plug a ruptured one. It's brain surgery without the surgery.

Intracranial Stenting

This procedure is used to treat severe narrowing of an artery within the brain. Through use of a catheter threaded from the thigh, a stent, or small metal tube, is placed inside the diseased blood vessel to return it to its normal size and to support the walls of the artery.

Arterial Venous Malformation Embolization

This procedure is performed to prevent blood vessels from rupturing, which may cause stroke or damage to the spinal tissue. Through a catheter in the groin, the physician injects various materials into the abnormal blood vessels to completely close them.

Carotid Stenting

The surgeon inserts a stent into the patient’s carotid artery, a major artery of the head and neck that helps supply blood to the brain. The stent expands, thereby increasing blood flow in areas blocked by plaque.
