Coil Embolization of Aneurysm
Coil embolization is another procedure to treat brain aneurysms. During this procedure, a catheter is placed in the groin and runs up to the brain aneurysm. Tiny, soft platinum coils are placed into the aneurysm. A blood clot forms around the coils to effectively prevent blood from entering into the aneurysm, and ideally preventing the risk of the aneurysm bursting.
Sometimes, a stent (small mesh tube) is used when the aneurysm is wide. It covers the neck of the aneurysm and helps keep the coils in place. In other cases, a balloon may be inflated at the neck of the aneurysm to help keep in the coils in place. The balloon is temporary.
Coiling may be performed as a preventative measure for those with un-ruptured aneurysms. However, is can also be performed on ruptured aneurysms.
Flowing Diverting Stent for Aneurysm
Another treatment for brain aneurysms is the surgical placement of flow diverting stents. As the name suggests, flow diversion is an endovascular technique that places a device (stent) in the parent blood vessel which diverts blood flow away from the aneurysm.

- I realized that Dr. Yashar genuinely cares to cure his patient with or without money, which makes him an exceptional doctor in a city that most physicians don't even listen to their patients, and all they do is to collect $ and ignore patients. At Dr. Yashar office I dealt with Amber and Michael who has been a credit to their profession and went above and beyond patient satisfaction.
