Temecula Valley Hospital Treats 1st Brain Aneurysm Patient

Temecula Valley Hospital has successfully treated the 1st brain aneurysm patient in our new facility. This is a 1st for the hospital and for the Southwest Riverside County region. A brain aneurysm is a weak spot in one of the brain’s arteries that flowing blood causes to balloon out, forming either a small pouch on one side of the artery wall or causes the artery to bulge out. The aneurysm was treated using endovascular coiling, in which wire coils are inserted into the artery of the brain at the aneurysm. The wire coils up inside the aneurysm disrupts the blood flow and essentially seals off the aneurysm from the artery.

The hospital’s recent expansion includes a new neuro biplane room, to provide such advanced neuroscience treatments. (Please see attached photo.) Specially trained physicians and a multidisciplinary team work together to treat patients with aneurysms or other neurologic conditions.

“We are thrilled about this 1st for our hospital,” said Darlene Wetton, Chief Executive Officer, of Temecula Valley Hospital. “Temecula Valley Hospital is committed to providing high quality, advanced medical treatment to the residents of this region. We are proud of our hospital staff and the physicians for providing advanced treatments, such as endovascular interventional neuroscience treatments for this community.”
