Patient Testimonial for Dorsal Flow Diverter Insertion

Testimonial by Mr. B. Narsimha Reddy

Treatment for: Basilar Artery Aneurysm
Treated by: Dr. Bharath Kumar Surisetti, Dr. Sanket Kulkarni
Patient location: Hyderabad

A basilar artery aneurysm occurs when there is a weak spot or bulge in the wall of the basilar artery, a major blood vessel located at the base of the brain. This condition can be caused by various factors, including high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, trauma, or genetic predisposition. Symptoms of a basilar artery aneurysm may vary depending on its size and location but can include severe headache, nausea, vomiting, visual disturbances, and neurological deficits such as weakness or numbness. Diagnosis typically involves imaging tests such as CT scans, MRI, or angiography to visualize the aneurysm and assess its size and location. Treatment options aim to prevent rupture and may include medication to control blood pressure, minimally invasive procedures, or surgical intervention.

Dorsal flow diverter insertion is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat basilar artery aneurysms by redirecting blood flow away from the aneurysm and promoting its healing and stabilization. During the procedure, a small catheter is inserted into the blood vessels through a tiny incision in the groin and guided to the site of the aneurysm in the basilar artery. A dorsal flow diverter device, made of a fine mesh-like material, is then carefully placed across the neck of the aneurysm to divert blood flow away from the weakened area, reducing the risk of rupture. This helps to gradually seal off the aneurysm and prevent further enlargement or rupture. This procedure is performed under imaging guidance and typically does not require open surgery, resulting in less trauma, faster recovery, and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional surgical approaches.

Mr. B. Narsimha Reddy from Hyderabad successfully underwent Dorsal Flow Diverter Insertion for Basilar Artery Aneurysm at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Bharath Kumar Surisetti, Consultant Neuro Physician and Movement Disorder Specialist and Dr. Sanket Kulkarni, Consultant Interventional Radiologist.
