Publication YearIssue Date 

On Fri., Feb. 28 two doctors associated with the University's Faculty of Medicine performed a new combined technique to successfully treat an inoperable brain aneurysm for the first time in Canada.

Dr. John Wong and Dr. Mark Hudson performed intracranial stent placement and aneurysm treatment using Onyx-a unique liquid embolic agent-on a patient, working through only a small incision in the leg.

I am very surprised and happy that there are sites that give so much information on brain aneurysms. I have had one brain surgery for a bleed
and still have 2 more aneurysms and don't know what to do. Doctors don't seem to understand that we need to know
all we can about our options for
treatment.

Thanks
