Mount Sinai Medical Center is among the first hospitals in South Florida to offer the biplane angio suite that enables interventional neuroradiologists to access the most remote parts of the brain using mini-catheter surgery and perform the most complex, minimally invasive interventions to treat conditions like aneurysms, vascular malformations, brain hemorrhages and brain tumors.
Our neuro-interventional team specializes in the use of a revolutionary detachable coiling operation, stent flow diversion, bifurcation stent reconstruction, pipeline stent and other minimally invasive techniques to treat aneurysms. Using state-of-the-art endovascular technology, combined with high-tech imaging to visualize a patient's cerebrovascular system, our physicians can reach aneurysms in the most challenging locations, often eliminating the need for more invasive and risky conventional surgery. Minimally invasive procedures such as thrombolysis are also used to treat acute ischemic strokes, which occur when an artery supplying blood to the brain becomes blocked. Percutaneous balloon angioplasty is also used to treat fibromuscular dysplasia, most commonly caused by a narrowing of arteries leading to the kidneys or to the brain.
