Neuroendovascular Embolizations to Cure Vein of Galen Malformations

Neuroendovascular Embolizations to Cure Vein of Galen Malformations

World–renowned Vein of Galen Malformation (VOGM) expert Alejandro Berenstein, MD, Professor of Neurosurgery and Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Director of the Pediatric Cerebrovascular Program at Mount Sinai Health System, reviews a VOGM case on a neonate with severe heart failure. Dr. Berenstein and the Mount Sinai team performed 16 neuroendovascular embolizations on the child beginning when he was six days old up to six years of age, utilizing an innovative transvenous embolization that reduced the fistula flow and cured the malformation. Dr. Berenstein has successfully treated the highly lethal condition in more than 300 pediatric patients.

Dr. Berenstein will be co-directing the Fifth Bi-Annual World AVM Congress at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai September 26-28, 2021.
