Using Pipeline® To Repair A Brain Aneurysm Without Surgery

Using a small catheter, a mesh scaffold (Pipeline® Embolization Device) is delivered inside the brain to the site of the damaged artery. Precise placement, followed by rapid cell growth on the device, creates a new “pipeline” for blood to flow. Relieved from the constant pressure of the blood flow, the aneurysm is then able to gradually shrink back around the device, minimizing the risk of rupturing the vessel.
