Aneurysms & Hemorrhages
Using cerebral angiography, the neurovascular team at CHI St. Luke’s Health has the capabilities to effectively detect aneurysms and the expertise to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Using the Latest Technology to Treat Aneurysms
CHI St. Luke’s Health is the first hospital in Texas to treat patients using PulseRider, a novel neurovascular device that enables minimally invasive endovascular treatment of patients diagnosed with wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms, complex brain aneurysms originating on or near a vessel bifurcation at the base of the skull.
Additionally, our team specializes in microvascular brain surgery and minimally invasive endovascular neurosurgery options for treating aneurysms, including:
- Flow Diversion
The Expertise to Halt Hemorrhages
CHI St. Luke’s Health neurosurgeons specialize in open microsurgery for the treatment of hemorrhages (ruptured blood vessels). Our team utilizes Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound for early detection of vasospasm in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage. We continuously monitor intracranial pressure to detect cerebral edema, swelling caused by excessive fluid in the brain, and optimize cerebral blood flow. For intracerebral hemorrhages, which often occur with stroke, our Comprehensive Stroke Centers offer the highest level of stroke care available.
