Advanced Aneurysm Treatment Unit

Advanced Aneurysm Treatment Hospital in Mumbai, India

The Advanced Aneurysm Treatment Unit at Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital offers comprehensive care for the treatment of aneurysms. A cerebral aneurysm is a medical condition that occurs due to weakness in the wall of an artery in the brain, which results in a balloon-like sac outpouching. An aneurysm may be detected following a haemorrhage presenting as severe headache or incidental.

Our multidisciplinary team of neuro-intensivists, vascular neurologists, endovascular neurosurgeons, and vascular neurosurgeons takes a joint consultation with neuro-radiologists for providing optimal treatment solutions tailored particularly for an aneurysm. We strive to offer the most appropriate care in the shortest time possible and are available 24X7 for emergencies.

The unit follows a multidisciplinary approach in treating most of the complex and rare cases related to a brain aneurysm using advanced minimally invasive technology and services, in order to ensure quality care and successful recovery. We are at the forefront to provide the highest quality evidence-based care to individuals who have been affected by a brain aneurysm and to help them improve their quality of life.

We offer treatment for cerebral aneurysms using the most complex and precise neurosurgeries also called Neurointerventions or Neuroendovascular surgeries that are performed using the endovascular route without opening the skull.

Definition of Brain Aneurysm

A brain aneurysm is a weak spot present in the blood vessel’s wall linked with the internal part of the brain.

Types of Brain Aneurysm

There are two types of brain aneurysms. This includes:

- Saccular aneurysm: This is the most common type of brain aneurysm and most patients suffer from rupture.

- Fusiform aneurysm: This is less commonly diagnosed than the earlier types. Also, the rupturing aspect is much less seen in patients with a fusiform aneurysm.

Signs and Symptom of Brain Aneurysm

The most common symptoms of brain aneurysm depend on whether it has ruptured or not:

- Nausea and vomiting

- Stiff neck

- Sudden headache (intense)

- Drowsiness

- Loss of consciousness

- Sensitivity to light

- Drooping eyelid

- Seizure

Causes of Brain Aneurysm

The common causes of a brain aneurysms include:

- When a person enters their 40s.

- Present at the time of birth.

- Occurs more in women than men.

- Some of the other factors include hypertension, family history, and cigarette smoking.

Possible Complications of Brain Aneurysm

The common brain aneurysm complications include:

- Re-bleeding: Patients can suffer from bleeding again which can lead to brain cell damage.

- Vasospasm: There are high chances of extreme blood vessels narrowing with a brain aneurysm. This contributes to further damage and loss of the brain cells.

- Hyponatremia: It mainly affects the area near the brain’s base.

- Hydrocephalus: This condition leads to increased cerebrospinal fluid that creates more pressure on the brain tissues causing damage.

Treatment of Brain Aneurysm

We manage most of the complex cerebral aneurysms at our well-equipped neurovascular cath lab and dedicated neurosurgical operating rooms. The treatments we offer include:

Surgical Treatment

  • Microsurgical clipping
  • Endovascular obliteration with Flow diversion using stents

Rehabilitation Program

All our advanced aneurysm treatments are managed in a dedicated, well-equipped, 10 bedded Neuro Intensive Care Unit.  Our unit has a comprehensive Rehabilitation Program which is staffed by a team of neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, as well as physical, occupational and speech therapists helping survivors to recover more effectively during the recovery process.

Precautions for Brain Aneurysm

- Choose to eat healthy foods. Go for fruits and vegetables. Reduce packaged and fried foods consumption.

- Control blood pressure levels.

- Stay free from stress by indulging yourself in hobbies.

- Quit smoking.

- Speak to your doctor for any precautionary measures

Prognosis

Nearly 60%-70% of patients survive after being treated for a brain aneurysm. Most patients who survive develop a neurological defect that usually stays for the rest of their lives.

Diagnosis for Brain Aneurysm

The primary diagnostic tests that are suggested for patients with unruptured brain aneurysms include:

  • Cerebral Angiography
  • Computed Tomography Scan (CT Angiogram)
  • Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Cerebrospinal Fluid Test
