Complex Vascular

Innovative, minimally invasive procedures lead to new benefits

St. John Providence Health System Van Elslander Neuroscience Center of Excellence provides innovative, minimally invasive procedures for diagnosing and treating problems in the brain, spinal cord and spine.

St. John Providence offers Michigan’s leading neuroendovascular therapy program. The therapy provides tremendous benefits to patients, including eliminating the need for major surgery, greatly reducing recovery times and minimizing complications. Often, a neuroendovascular procedure can be performed on a patient who previously may not have been a candidate for traditional treatment.

During procedures, a physician uses microcatheters to deliver medication to a targeted site, employ a device (such as balloons, coils and stents) or perform an embolectomy. The physician then obtains access through the femoral artery, and navigates through the artery, assisted by real-time, bi-plane digital angiography and fluoroscopy.

Neuroendovascular therapy can be used in the treatment of:

  • Intracranial aneurysms with coiling devices
  • Vasospasms for SAH
  • Embolic Stroke
  • Symptomatic intracranial atherosclerosis
  • Ateriovenous malformations
  • Embolization of vascular tumors
  • Ischemic stroke
  • Intracranial atherosclerosis
  • Thrombo-embolic stroke
  • Hemorrhagic stroke
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Vascular malformations including AVM, fistula and aneurysm
