Robotic intervention for cerebral aneurysms

The Vascular and interventional radiology department (VINRAD) of Ghent University Hospital in Belgium has become the first in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, to use a robot for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms.

When treating an aneurysm in the cerebral artery, the clinician first inserts a flexible catheter into a blood vessel through the arm or groin. From there, they manoeuvre the catheter through the arterial system to the brain, assisted by X-rays and contrast medium to visualise the vessels and blood flow. The VINRAD service at the University of Ghent undertakes this procedure about 80 times a year.
