According to brainneurysm.com, a catheter is inserted into a vessel over the hip and other catheters are navigated through the blood vessels to the vessels of the brain and into the aneurysm. Coils are then packed into the aneurysm up to the point where it arises from the blood vessel, preventing blood flow from entering the aneurysm.”

This was the first choice in the treatment plan. the second procedure of which was the surgery if the coiling didn’t work. Thank God for gifting the doctors with amazingly steady and crafty hands. The 1st plan was successful. Julio is now in ICU under observation. He will remain there for 1 week since his condition is still considered critical.

If not, it will be transmitted through my son Michael who is helping his uncle out with all his needs, “she remarked.
