When the large brain aneurysm of a 35-year-old patient doubled in size in ten days, Endovascular Neurosurgeon and Interventional Neuroradiologist Prof. José Cohen and his colleagues in the Department of Neurosurgery at Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem pioneered a new technique to save his life.

With the assistance of Prof. Moshe Gomory, head of Hadassah’s Neuroradiology and Magnetic Resonance Unit, and highly advanced equipment, they built an artificial artery inside the brain aneurysm. “The immediate results are very encouraging and offer a new option for treating a disease that, so far, has had no cure,” relates Prof. Cohen.
