Yale vascular neurosurgeons the first in Connecticut to repair a complex, wide-neck brain aneurysm using a novel bifurcation device, the PulseRider.

April 25, 2018

Drs. Ryan Hebert and Charles Matouk (Section Chief of Neurovascular Surgery), working alongside their fellow Branden Cord, performed the first Cerenovus PulseRider® procedure in Connecticut. This novel technology for wide-neck, bifurcation aneurysms made its repair safe and effective.

The Section of Neurovascular Surgery is the largest in Connecticut and one of the largest in New England. We repair ~ 160 brain aneurysms per year and offer all modalities of treatment including many cutting edge technologies only available through clinical trials. We are proud to have been selected and invited to participate in the NAPA Study – a prospective, multi-center, single arm study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the PulseRider® aneurysm neck reconstruction device in the treatment of wide-neck bifurcation intracranial aneurysms.
