Diagnostics & Treatments

University Hospitals Offers Advanced Neurological Monitoring and Treatment

At the Neurocritical Care Center at University Hospitals Neurological Institute, our team employs the latest interventions to preserve brain function including:

  • Cerebral angiography and intervention (angioplasty, stenting): A tiny surgical balloon dilates the artery, increasing blood flow
  • Endovascular coiling: Tiny coils of stainless steel placed inside an aneurysm to prevent it from rupturing
  • Intravenous and intra-arterial thrombolysis: Intravenous (IV) therapy to dissolve stroke-causing clots
  • Induced hypertension (hypertensive hypervolemic hemodilution): Combines IV medications and fluids to increase blood pressure and volume, allowing blood to flow through blocked arteries
  • Induced hypothermia: Lowers the brain’s temperature to protect cells from cell death
  • Burst suppression: Uses seizure medication to reduce the brain's metabolic and electrical activity
  • Plasmapheresis: Removes and cleanses blood
  • Ventricular drainage: Allows cerebrospinal fluid to be drained so that it does not cause increased pressure in the brain
