Revolutionary Brain Aneurysm Device Promising Swifter Recovery and Reduced Invasiveness

Innovative device eradicates brain aneurysms

An innovative device is showing promise in the fight against brain aneurysms, which can lead to strokes or even death. Over six million people in the United States live with unruptured brain aneurysms, often without realizing it until it’s too late. One such person was Judy Sadler, who woke up with a bad nosebleed and high blood pressure, fearing she may have had a stroke. An MRI revealed an unruptured brain aneurysm in the front part of her brain.

Traditional surgery for aneurysms typically involves stents and coils, but a new nationwide clinical trial is testing the contour neurovascular system. This device aims to block off the aneurysm without needing for these devices, making the procedure less invasive and with a quicker recovery time. Judy was back at work just three days after her procedure, feeling better and more active.

Research on the contour device will continue for a few more years before seeking FDA approval. The goal is to enroll 200 patients across the country to study its effectiveness in treating brain aneurysms. If successful, this device could offer a new, safer option for those at risk of a ruptured aneurysm.
