In addition to the care provided to ischemic stroke patients (strokes related to blood clots), Renown Neurovascular and Stroke Program provides care to patients with other neurovascular diseases:
- Aneurysm coiling: An aneurysm is a weakening in the blood vessel wall. Renown Neurointerventional surgeons place coils and/or stents to re-strengthen the blood vessel wall to prevent future brain bleeding.
- Traumatic brain injury: Renown Medical Center is a Level 2 trauma center with neurosurgical expertise available around the clock to surgically treat brain hemorrhages related to trauma.
- Hemorrhagic strokes: These strokes result from brain bleeding, and patients may have life-threatening complications related to brain swelling, which is treated by neurosurgery.
- Vascular malformations: Some hemorrhagic strokes are caused by an underlying abnormality in the blood vessels. Examples are arteriovenous malformations or dural arteriovenous fistulas. Treatments for vascular malformations require a multidisciplinary approach of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Neurointerventional Surgery available at Renown Medical Center.
