Kolkata's CMRI hospital achieves global first with unprecedented pediatric neurovascular surgery

Kolkata/IBNS: The Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI) in Kolkata has achieved a milestone in pediatric neurointerventional surgery.

This breakthrough signifies a paradigm shift in pediatric neurointerventional care, potentially revolutionizing treatment options for children with complex neurological conditions.

CMRI's Department of Neurology's consultant Deep Das-led team's accomplishment involves the innovative implantation of an intracranial flow diverter therapy to address an unruptured giant intracranial aneurysm in a two-year-old child.

The patient, presenting with afebrile childhood seizures, underwent the procedure for about 90 minutes of endovascularly under general anesthesia.

Department of Neurology's consultant Deep Das said, “Referred by Dr. GK Prusty, the child with convulsions underwent a CT scan, revealing a giant aneurysm 10 times larger than what we usually see in the Left middle cerebral artery."

"After a comprehensive discussion with the family, we opted for a pioneering minimally invasive endovascular approach, collaborating with Pediatrician Dr. Ruchi Golash and Dr. Sailesh Kumar, the head of the anesthesiology department," the physician said.

"Successfully addressing potential risks of temporary or permanent paralysis, speech disturbances and death, we implanted an endovascular flow diverter to regulate blood flow and prevent aneurysm entry of blood thereby encouraging its shrinkage over time,” he added.

The senior neurologist said, "This success story reflects the collaborative efforts of our medical team and advancements in the field, marking a milestone in pediatric neurovascular care. For this indication the procedure is unprecedented not only in India but globally."

The young patient, post-operatively shows no signs of deficits, affirming the success and precision of the treating team.

This breakthrough advances treatment possibilities for neurovascular conditions in pediatric patients.

Speaking on the occasion, Unit Head at CMRI, Sombrata Roy said, "This groundbreaking achievement underscores our unwavering commitment to clinical excellence and innovation."

"Dr. Deep Das and the entire medical team have set a new standard in pediatric neurovascular care, reflecting our continuous pursuit of delivering world-class healthcare to our community," he added.
