Brain aneurysms can now be treated with a less invasive procedure

Brain aneurysm is a weakness in one of the blood vessels in the brain, causing the vessel to bulge, ultimately resulting in a brain hemorrhage. Around thirty thousand Americans, on an average, suffer a brain hemorrhage in a year and they are treated surgically or non-surgically depending on the size of the neck of the bulge. A bulge with a narrow neck is treated non-surgically by filling it with lots of tiny metal coils that divert blood flow away from the aneurysm. However, if// the neck of the bulge is wide, it is removed surgically as the metal coils would fall out and perhaps trigger a stroke by blocking the vessel.

Researchers at the University of Maryland have now discovered a new procedure that can help avoid surgery for those people with brain aneurysm, in which the blood vessel bulge has a wide neck. The new procedure, which is far less invasive than surgery, involves the use of a stent to hold the metal vessels in place. A stent is a type of wire mesh which is inserted through a tiny catheter inserted into a blood vessel in the groin. The stent is then guided into position using computerised X-ray scanners. This new procedure will considerably decrease the recovery time for the patient who can return to work within a week with literally no side effects.
