A 59-year-old man was recently treated at a city hospital for multiple conditions, including an aneurysm, seizures and thrombus.
The man had trouble speaking, expressed a tugging sensation in his right hand and his tongue folded inward, indicating he was having a seizure, which an ECG further confirmed late.
Bhuvaneshwari Rajendran, a consultant neurologist in the Department of Neurology and Neurophysiology at Kauvery Hospital, said an MRI revealed a 5mm brain aneurysm caused by weakening of the walls of the main blood vessel and a clot (thrombus) in a main artery supplying the left brain. “The patient was treated with a minimally invasive procedure involving a coagulation and a post-endovascular coiling procedure of anticoagulants,” said Dr Bhuvaneshwari. When the patient was released four days later, he was able to move his hands and speak.
Aravindan Selvaraj, co-founder and executive director of the hospital, said: “Our center of excellence in neurology offers the best treatment in its class, opting for people with any neurological complications and the neuro-care unit. intensive with state-of-the-art facilities. provides the best care and rehabilitation for patients.
