The Health Foundation gave another giant leap in neurovascular surgeries

Dr. Jorge Chudyk, a surgeon specializing in interventional neuroradiology at the Tesãi Foundation, talks to us about performing an intracerebral angioplasty with stent placement on a patient who suffered a stroke, an anomaly detected in tomography and MRI studies with technology. advanced.

Angioplastia intracerebral

Intracerebral angioplasty was performed on a patient over 60 years old, with multiple risk factors. Fortunately, the surgery was successful and he is in the process of recovery and favorable evolution, stated Dr. Chudyk.

The procedure consisted of opening blocked arteries to restore blood flow to the brain in order to prevent or treat cerebrovascular events in the patient, by placing a stent, which is a metal mesh tube that expands within the artery of the brain.

“That stroke was due to damage to an artery that carries blood to the brain. The procedure in that case was to dilate that artery that was closed by more than 90% with a potential risk of suffering another stroke, even with a fatal outcome if it is completely closed,” explained the specialist with solid training and experience.

The patient did not have good collateral circulation, the specialist added. “We placed a stent so that the artery was dilated using the balloon, leaving the stent in place and with that the flow of the artery was completely restored,” he stated at another time.

Multidisciplinary team

The professional highlighted the quality of the human capital of the Tesãi Foundation, reaffirming the added value of an entire top-level multidisciplinary team in permanent training and updating in the face of advances in modern medicine.

“The diagnosis always starts in the emergency with the doctors who make the first evaluation, also the nurses, clinicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, radiologists, a highly trained luxury team with solid training,” he said.

Angiograph with cutting-edge technology

Dr. Jorge Chudyk highlighted the benefits of the GE healthCare Innova TM IGS 5 angiograph installed in the hemodynamics room, which allows many alternatives for diagnostic studies and less invasive procedures, without cuts, without scars and shortening the patient’s recovery time.

“We do surgeries not only on the head, but also on the heart, aortic aneurysms, surgeries for blockages in the arteries in the legs, all procedures with a lower dose of radiation and less contrast. This equipment with advanced navigation instruments allows a multiplicity of very precise, high-impact studies,” highlighted the interventional neuroradiologist.

The objective of diagnostic methods is to know if there is any disease, narrowing, enlargement and obstruction of blood vessels, arteriovenous malformations, tumors, aortic aneurysms and stent placement.


Doctor graduated from the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro, (UNIRIO), Brazil. He is a specialist in diagnostic imaging at the University of Buenos Aires and a subspecialist in Interventional Neuroradiology at the Eneri Medical Institute, Buenos Aires. Interventional neuroradiologist at the Area 2 Hospital of Ciudad del Este and at the Ministerio Costa Cavalcanti Hospital in Foz de Iguazú, Brazil.
