Surgical and endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms, AVMs, and other vascular lesions has become increasingly complex and technically demanding. Endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms, in particular, has seen significant advances over the past few years. The use of flow-diverting stents and coils has revolutionized the endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms, making it possible to treat even the most complex aneurysms with a high degree of success. In addition, newer techniques such as intraoperative ultrasound and 3D angiography have made it possible to safely and effectively treat AVMs and other vascular lesions. As a result, surgical and endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms, AVMs, and other vascular lesions is now more safe and effective than ever before.
Endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms, AVMs, and other vascular lesions has become an increasingly popular option in recent years. This minimally invasive procedure involves the placement of a stent or coil through a small incision in the femoral artery. Once in place, the stent or coil helps to keep the blood vessel open and prevent future bleeding. Endovascular treatment is often used in combination with surgical removal of the aneurysm or AVM. In some cases, it may also be used as a standalone procedure. Endovascular treatment is generally considered to be safe and effective, and it carries a lower risk of complications than traditional surgical approaches.
Recovering can be both a difficult and rewarding experience. At Gulf Coast Brain and Spine Center our team of neurosurgeons specialize in both surgical and endovascular treatments to help our patients find relief from their conditions.
When it comes to recovering after either of these treatments, the exact timeline will depend on the complexity of your procedure as well as which type of treatment you receive. In general, recovery after surgery takes a few weeks while recovery from an endovascular treatment may take just a few days.
