Vascular Neurosurgery Symptoms, Treatment & Cost in India.

The neurovascular disease is known as a dangerous disorder where the blood vessel of the brain and spine gets affected. Any type of obstruction in the arteries can lead to neurovascular disease. Symptoms of Neurovascular diseases includes the narrowing of the arteries which reduces the flow of blood to the brain and it eventually increases the chances of stroke. Blood circulates within the whole body through the arteries and veins. Arteries are the main carriers of the oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the whole body and the veins bring blood back to the heart. Aside from this, neurovascular diseases may weaken your arteries and it may lead to brain aneurysms and other symptoms which may increase the risk of a stroke. This disease is most commonly treated with vascular neurosurgery and medications.

Symptoms of Neurovascular Diseases

The neurovascular symptoms diseases depend on the disease or abnormality. There are chances that some of the neurovascular symptoms do not show or have any symptoms. The symptoms of neurovascular diseases usually start suddenly, such as:

  • Numbness (the muscle get weakens at one side of the body).
  • Motor problems (it includes problems with the grasping of the objects and walking).
  • Trouble in speaking or understanding speech.
  • Problems with the vision, such as vision loss or visually impaired
  • Hearing problems.
  • Dizziness.
  • Problem with the balancing and coordination.
  • Low feeling for the sensations in the body.
  • Seizures,Vomiting,Behavioral changes.

Conditions of Vascular Neurosurgery

  • Arteriovenous malformations:Arteriovenous malformations are a tangle of the abnormal blood vessels which connect the arteries and veins in the brain, it obstructs the normal flow of the blood and oxygen. Arteries are the main carriers of the oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the whole body and the veins bring oxygen depleted blood back to the heart. If arteriovenous malformation happens in the brain then it may cause brain hemorrhage, stroke, brain damage and possibly death.
  • Brain Aneurysms:A brain aneurysm is a bulge in the vessel wall of the artery in the brain. It may lead to leaking or bleeding in the brain. A brain aneurysm usually occurs in the space between the brain and thin tissues, which covers a part of the brain. It can cause you a brain hemorrhage or stroke.
  • Carotid artery stenosis :It is a progressive narrowing of the carotid arteries, these are the two major arteries that acts as a carrier for the oxygen-rich blood to travel from heart to the brain. A condition where the plaque gets deposits in the artery and obstructs the flow of blood to the brain is known as atherosclerosis. Stenosis can get worsen with time and can block the arteries completely and may lead to stroke.
  • Arteriovenous fistula :Arteriovenous fistula is an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein. Normally, the blood carries the nutrients and oxygen to your capillaries to tissues of your body. In arteriovenous fistula, the blood flows directly from your artery to the veins and tissue below the capillaries receive diminished blood supply.
  • Cavernous malformations:It is a collection of small blood vessels in the central nervous system that is enlarged in size. In cavernous malformations, your blood vessel wall gets thinner than normal, which is less elastic and may leak. It can happen anywhere in your body. The symptoms are visible when it happens in the brain and spinal cord.
  • Moyamoya disease:Moyamoya is a rare but progressive blood vessel disorder, the carotid artery gets blocked or reduces the flow of blood to your brain. In an attempt to supply the blood to the brain the tiny nerves open at the base of the brain. When these tiny clusters of the blood vessels are unable to supply the oxygen-rich blood to the brain, it may result in temporary and permanent brain surgery.

Neurovascular Diseases Treatment & Cost in India.

  • Microsurgery:Microsurgery is a type of vascular neurosurgery performed with an operating microscope. Treatments of Neurovascular Diseases can be done with traditional and microscopic surgery methods. This type of surgery involves a great hand-eye concentration and coordination.
  • Endovascular surgery :This is another type of vascular neurosurgery that is minimally invasive surgery to treat the affected blood vessels, such as brain aneurysms (ballooning of the blood vessels). In the treatments of neurovascular diseases It requires a small incision and a catheter is inserted into the artery through the groin area and guided to the brain. Less pain, shorter hospital stays and lower chances of complications than traditional method surgery are some of the benefits of this procedure.
  • Radiosurgery:This surgery is performed using radiation therapy. Gamma knife is used to make incision radiation beams to the affected area to treat brain disorders. The treatments of neurovascular disease by using radiosurgery is considered as an effective and trusted form of treatment.
  • Medications:Medication helps to lower down the cholesterol and blood pressure and reduce your risk of blood clotting.
