Narayana Health, one of India’s leading healthcare providers, has once again proven its mettle by successfully treating a patient suffering from a brain aneurysm with a pioneering medical procedure that is now the world’s fastest.
The patient, who was 47 years old, had developed multiple intracranial aneurysms. One of these aneurysms had burst, leading to life-threatening internal bleeding in the brain. Dr. Vikram Huded, along with his team from NH Institute of Neuroscience, tackled the challenge by performing a flow diverter stenting procedure using an advanced device.
The procedure’s uniqueness lies in the exceptional speed with which it was performed – in just under three minutes, making it the fastest deployment of this kind of device ever recorded globally. The company that manufactures the device also recognized it as such.
Dr. Huded highlighted that this advanced type of flow-diverter device has been used in India for the first time. The device assists in ensuring the blood flowing through the artery does not enter the bulging aneurysm, thereby causing it to shrink over time.
This achievement by Narayana Health not only sets a new benchmark in the medical field but also showcases the importance of continuous innovation and commitment to excellence in healthcare.
