A 65-year-old Man Suffering from Left Cerebral Hypoperfusion Successfully Recovered Through Intracranial Stenting

Doctors reduced the patient’s risk of developing major stroke through stenting in the brain.

Bangalore, June 12, 2019: A 65-year-old man was suffering from Cerebral hypoperfusion syndrome due to intracranial severe atherosclerosis, which was refractory to medical treatment (hypoperfusion is a condition caused due to insufficient supply of blood and oxygen to the brain), was treated successfully at Fortis Hospital, Cunningham Road. The team of doctors led by Dr. Ganesh Veerabhadraiah, Senior Consultant, Neurosurgery, Fortis Hospital, Cunningham Road performed Intracranial stenting on the patient to reduce the risk of getting stroke.

The patient was brought to Fortis Hospitals with chief complaints of weakness in the right side of the body along with frequent fainting attacks and a past history of diabetes and hypertension. It was further diagnosed that the left side of the brain had almost stopped functioning due to inadequate blood supply. It was the result of the narrowing of the channels(arteries) that connect the heart to the brain.

 

MRI scan of the brain showed that the patient had an inadequate flow of blood in the brain due to which he was at a high risk of getting stroke. Owing to the severity of the case, we recommended the patient to undergo intracranial stenting. The stenting helped in managing and normalising the blood flow to the brain. We did pinhole surgery/ endovascular surgery to approach the brain vessels as he had narrow blood vessels in the neck and brain. Both these problems were addressed at the same time through stenting. Fortunately, the patient withstood the entire procedure and there was no complications post procedure. The patient is doing well now.

Early diagnosis plays a vital role in treating patients suffering from hypoperfusion. The patient, Mr. Shyam (name changed) said, “I am grateful to Dr. Ganesh who guided and treated me well. I am thankful to God and the entire team of Fortis Hospitals who saved me from the risk of getting stroke.
