Interventional Neurology Unit
Globally, we are currently experiencing advances in cardiac surgery, yet neurological morbidity remains one of the major extra cardiac manifestations that are presented as a stroke that causes a brain injury.
So this unit is built to control the factors that can lead to a stroke, any arteriovenous malformation or cerebrovascular disease along with aneurysms. And we have the best team to deal with such complications.
The Stroke and Carotid Artery Disease Program at Alhyatt Heart and Vascular Center offers innovative diagnostic, medical, surgical and endovascular interventions to treat patients with carotid stenosis, that occurs when the carotid arteries, the main blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood to the brain, become narrowed, or stroke, also called brain attack, occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted.
Our neurological experts use a collaborative approach to ensure patients receive the best full-service care for stroke, carotid artery blockage and other serious medical conditions as a result of carotid artery disease.
We work together with the patient and referring physician to coordinate personalized treatment plans for all patients.
The care team at Alhyatt Heart and Vascular Center encourages all patients and family members to learn more about conditions and diseases that affect the cardiovascular system.
If necessary, Alhyatt physicians are equipped to open blocked carotid arteries through minimally invasive stenting procedures.
Not all patients with carotid stenosis require surgery or intervention. Medical management can be an effective strategy for treatment.
