RENOWN HEALTH BRINGS NEW SERVICE TO COMMUNITY

RENOWN HEALTH BRINGS NEW SERVICE TO COMMUNITY

RENO, Nev. – (September 10, 2007) – Renown Health brings a new service to members of its community. The Wingspan Stent stroke-prevention procedure is the first and only in the state. The procedure relies on the expertise of C. Blease Graham III, MD, interventional neuroradiologist with Reno Radiological Associates, whose work is supported by the technology of northern Nevada’s only Bi-plane Angiography machine at Renown Regional Medical Center.

“This is a new and exciting procedure designed to treat a sub-group of patients with an unusually high risk of stroke,” Dr. Graham said. About 10-15 percent of strokes occur as the result of severe narrowing of diseased brain arteries. The new procedure uses tiny metal scaffolding-type devices called stents that are used to remodel these compromised vessels. Using digital X-ray images from Renown Regional’s Bi-plane Angiography machine, Graham snakes a catheter through an artery from the leg to reach the brain. From there, he can deploy stents within the diseased arteries to help prevent clots from causing a stroke. “At Renown Regional Medical Center, we are constantly on the forefront of innovative techniques.”

Like all radiologists, Dr. Graham completed a four-year-residency in radiology after medical school. What differentiates him is an additional three years of fellowship with an emphasis on the diagnosis and treatment of neurovascular (veins and arteries) diseases of the brain and spine. He is currently the only physician qualified to perform this procedure in northern Nevada.

Vessels in the brain present different challenges because they are more fragile and have more curves, making it difficult to navigate to the site of the blockage. Today only a small number of patients who have already experienced a stroke and/or recurrent stroke-like symptoms may benefit from the procedure. However, this technique provides a promising new option for stroke survivors at high risk, Dr. Graham said.

“The arrival of this procedure signals to the people of our community that they no longer have to look outside our local region for exclusive health care needs,” said Jim Miller, Renown Health president and chief executive officer. “People in Nevada have access to quality care here at home.”

For the procedure, Dr. Graham works directly with neurologists, who deal with disorders that affect the central nervous system, specifically the brain and spinal cord. William McHugh, M.D., neurology, is a local physician who has a patient that has experienced the procedure.

“The Wingspan Stent is a new and safer way of treating severe narrowing of some intracranial arteries and can reduce the risk of stroke,” Dr. McHugh said. “Unlike conventional stents that are expanded by a balloon, the Wingspan Stent is self-expanding, which makes it safer to use in these delicate vessels. Like the stents used in heart arteries, the Wingspan Stent is put in place by a radiologist using an intracranial catheter under X-ray control.”
