Dr. Sean Lavine Invited to Share Aneurysm Expertise in France

Dr. Sean Lavine in FranceIf your job title starts with the word neuro – you will have wanted to be in Nice, France last month and Columbia neurosurgeon, Dr. Sean Lavine was!

He was invited to speak at the Sixth Annual European Society of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapy (ESMINT) Congress.

The main goal of the Congress is to encourage, support and facilitate discussions among a broad spectrum of brain scientists and doctors who are working to develop and improve minimally invasive methods for the treatment of neurological diseases.

Dr. Lavine spoke about aneurysms of the Middle Cerebral Artery (MCA), a major supplier of blood to the brain and a common site for brain aneurysms.

Such aneurysms may be treated either through open brain surgery, where a clip is placed at the base of the aneurysm, or through minimally invasive embolization using tiny, soft coils.

Dr. Lavine shared his expert opinion and research to discuss when surgery is the better option over embolization, taking into account such factors as the patient’s age and overall health, and the shape and location of the aneurysm.

At ESMINT, lively debate and controversial opinions are encouraged. This year’s Congress was attended by more than 600 professionals from 40 different countries. Dr. Lavine says he found the experience to be very refreshing, with open and honest discussions following the presentations.
