CMRI Sets a Global Record with Unprecedented Paediatric Neurovascular Surgery

News Desk, News Nation 360 : The Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI), Kolkata, under the direction of Dr Deep Das and his outstanding team, accomplished a historic first in paediatric neuro-interventional research. This discovery represents a paradigm shift in paediatric neurointerventional care and could change the way children with complex neurological conditions are treated. It affirms that CMRI is a world leader in medical innovation and excellence because of its persistent dedication to cutting-edge methods and kind, patient-centred care. Dr Deep Das, Consultant, Department of Neurology, revealed that The child experiencing convulsions was referred to Dr GK Prusty, and upon CT scan, a massive aneurysm ten times larger than what is typically seen in the left middle cerebral artery was discovered. Following a thorough consultation with the family, they chose to work with paediatrician Dr Ruchi Golash and anesthesiologist Dr Sailesh Kumar to implement a novel minimally invasive endovascular procedure. They successfully addressed the risks of death, speech impairments, and temporary or permanent paralysis by implanting an endovascular flow diverter to control blood flow and stop blood from entering an aneurysm, which will cause the aneurysm to shrink over time. The groundbreaking achievement of the team is the creative implantation of an intracranial flow diverter therapy to treat a 2-year-old child's unruptured giant intracranial aneurysm. The patient, who had afebrile childhood seizures, underwent the endovascular procedure under general anaesthesia for approximately ninety minutes. This procedure demonstrated the hospital's dedication to state-of-the-art technology and minimally invasive techniques.
