A doctor may prescribe the treatment by evaluating the diagnostic reports and create a plan which works best based on your health and the size, type, and location of the aneurysm. The two most advanced methods used for Aneurysm Treatment include:
It is a surgical process that demands the removal of a section of the patient’s skull in order to locate the aneurysm. A metal clip is then placed on the opening of the aneurysm to cut off the blood flow from the blood vessel that feeds the aneurysm. The brain is then sealed back with stitches.
In endovascular coiling, a very thin metal wire is inserted inside the brain aneurysm, through a miniature catheter, by a highly experienced surgeon. This micro-catheter is navigated through the web of brain arteries under image guidance in a cath lab. Once the catheter reaches the desired location, a series of handmade coils are placed inside the aneurysm and detached from outside the body. These small coils form a coil mass which blocks the blood flow to the aneurysm and subsequently lead to the healing of the artery.
- Flow Diversion with Stents
It is one of the latest and most advanced treatments for a brain aneurysm, which involves the use of flow diverters, tubular stent-like implants. These implants work by diverting blood flow away from an aneurysm sac, thereby stopping blood movement within the aneurysm. This helps in stimulating the body to improve the site.
