The man had speech impairment, expressed a pulling sensation in his right hand and his tongue was folding inwards, indicating that he was undergoing a seizure, which an ECG confirmed later.
Bhuvaneshwari Rajendran, consultant neurologist at the Neurology and Neurophysiology Department of Kauvery Hospital here, said an MRI revealed a 5 mm cerebral aneurysm caused by a weakening in the walls of the main blood vessel and a clot (thrombus) in a major artery feeding the left brain. “The patient was treated with a minimally invasive procedure involving coiling and administered blood thinners post-endovascular coiling procedure,” Dr. Bhuvaneshwari said. When the patient was discharged four days later, he was able to move his hands and speak.
Aravindan Selvaraj, hospital co-founder and executive director said: “Our centre of excellence for neurology offers best-in-class treatment, opting for people with any neurological complication and the neuro-intensive care unit with state-of-the-art facilities provides utmost care and rehabilitation for patients.”
