Neuro Embolization: a procedure used to treat an aneurysm!

 | Post date: 2021/11/9 | 
Embolization of brain aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVM) uses imaging guidance to place small, soft metal coils into an aneurysm to block the flow of blood and prevent the aneurysm from rupturing. It also is used to fill AVMs – abnormal connections between arteries and veins – with liquid embolic agents (similar to fast-sealing glue). AVMs may prevent oxygenated blood from completely circulating throughout the brain and can cause a variety of problems, including headache, weakness, and other neurological symptoms. Embolization treats cerebral aneurysms and AVMs previously thought inoperable and is much less invasive than open surgery.
