This department deals with diseases of the vascular system, that is, arteries, veins and lymphatic system. Our vascular and endovascular surgeons treat blood vessel and lymphatic system conditions (vascular diseases) fully to restore to maximum health and well-being. Our experience and expertise, coupled with our team approach and research prowess enables us to deliver successful treatments each time.

What is an Aneurysm?

An aneurysm is a weak area in the wall of a blood vessel that causes the blood vessel to bulge or balloon out. When an aneurysm occurs in a blood vessel of the brain, it is called a cerebral aneurysm.An aneurysm may be present from birth (congenital) or it may develop later in life, such as after a blood vessel is injured.

What are the treatment options available in India for Cerebral Aneurysm?

There are two main types of treatment for a brain aneurysm :

  • Preventive Treatment : where an aneurysm is treated to prevent it from rupturing
  • Emergency Treatment : where an aneurysm is repaired after it ruptures

What are the surgical treatments available in India for Cerebral Aneurysms?

Neurosurgical Clipping :

Neurosurgical clipping is a procedure carried out under general anaesthetic (you're asleep throughout). A cut is made in your scalp and a small flap of bone is removed to reveal your brain underneath.When the aneurysm is located, the neurosurgeon (an expert in surgery of the brain and nervous system) will seal it shut using a tiny metal clip. After the bone flap has been replaced, the scalp is stitched together.

Endovascular Coiling :

Endovascular coiling involves inserting a catheter into an artery in your leg or groin. The tube is guided through the network of blood vessels into your head and finally into the aneurysm. Tiny platinum coils are then passed through the tube into the aneurysm. The coils block the flow of blood into the aneurysm. Over time this should seal the aneurysm off from the main artery to prevent it from rupturing.
