Dr. Josser Delgado Participates In Pioneering Live-Streamed Brain Aneurysm Procedure
Dr. Josser Delgado, a leading expert in neurointerventional radiology at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, MN, and a highly regarded member of the neurointerventional radiology section at Consulting Radiologists, Ltd., recently teamed up with Dr. Brijesh Mehta. Dr. Mehta, a distinguished vascular and interventional neurologist, also serves as the medical director of the Comprehensive Stroke and Neurointerventional Surgery programs at the Memorial Neuroscience Institute. Together, they achieved a significant breakthrough by conducting a pioneering live-streamed endovascular neurosurgery. This groundbreaking procedure conducted to fully secure a complex brain aneurysm, employing the innovative Microvention Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device.
Utilizing the Proximie virtual operating room, Dr. Delgado, who was nearly 1800 miles away from where the procedure was being performed, offered technical guidance for the minimally invasive endovascular treatment of a potentially life-threatening brain aneurysm. A brain aneurysm which carried a significant risk of fatality if it were to rupture, causing bleeding in the brain.
We applaud the accomplishments of Dr. Josser Delgado, Dr. Brijesh Mehta, and the Memorial Neuroscience Institute, acknowledging that this live-streamed procedure represents a transformative moment in healthcare around the world.
