The Heart and Brain Center of Excellence’s team of neurosurgeons in Pleven saved a 64-year-old patient with three brain metastasis using an ultrasound resection
The specialists from the neurosurgery clinic at the Hearth and Brain Center of Excellence in Pleven performed a unique brain surgery. After an epileptic seizure, a 64-year-old patient was brought to the hospital with right-sided hemiparesis and partial motor aphasia. Following a carcinoma of the large intestine, it was established that the patient had three brain metastasis in active zones. After conducting on-site contrast MRI and navigation protocol, under the control of neuronavigated ultrasonography and neuromonitoring, the neurosurgeon doctor Emil Marinchev and his team performed a one-stage complex surgery with minimal surgical incisions (trepanations). Under optical zoom and by using ultrasound resection, all three metastasis were removed completely.
The patient was discharged after seven days post-operative hospital stay with normal neurological status and is successfully recovering.
