In the United States, millions of people are living with unruptured brain aneurysms but are unaware of their condition until it’s too late. However, a new device is now available to help destroy these aneurysms before they lead to strokes or other serious consequences.

One such person, Judy Sadler, experienced symptoms such as a severe bloody nose and high blood pressure and sought medical attention. An MRI revealed a brain aneurysm in the front of her brain, which was luckily detected before it ruptured.

Neurointerventional surgeon Ian Kaminsky explains that when a brain aneurysm bleeds, 10 percent of individuals die immediately, while many others experience severe disability or do not survive a hospital stay. That’s why researchers are testing the Contour Neurovascular System in a national clinical trial to rule out aneurysms without the need for stents or coils.

The procedure involves blocking flow into the aneurysm by making an opening inside it and using mesh density to destroy the aneurysm. This method results in a shorter procedure and recovery time, as evidenced by Judy’s return to work just three days after treatment.

Through ongoing research and clinical trials, researchers hope to gather data on the effectiveness of the contour device in treating aneurysms and ultimately seek FDA approval. Currently, they are continuing to enroll patients in the study to further test the capabilities and benefits of this innovative technology.
