Weighing Up Treatment Options For Optimal Outcomes

Too often what seems like a small incident can lead to unthinkable consequences. This was true for Mr F. when at home one day he took a fall that changed his life in ways he never saw coming.

As a business man in his early 50's Mr F. lived a normal life. He worked hard, practiced a healthy lifestyle and also enjoyed having a few drinks on social occasions. Whilst at home one day Mr F. had an unfortunate accident and fell. He thought nothing of it at the time, however he gave more attention to the incident when he began to experience pains in his neck and back as well as numbness of his right arm and leg. Several tests were done in his local hospital over the course of a few weeks to determine the cause of his pain.

An MRI scan showed multiple posterior disc protrusions. A posterior disc protrusion refers to when a disc in the spine has been weakened and moved out of its given place, resulting in the compression of a nerve, causing irritation and inflammation which in turn leads to pain, possible numbness and various other symptoms.

It was also incidentally discovered that Mr F. had a tiny cerebral aneurysm, a condition whereby the wall of the artery in the brain becomes dilated, commonly known as ballooning of the blood vessel.

In the months following, Mr F. consulted with several neurosurgeons who gave contradicting advice on whether or not to proceed with major surgery. Such a surgery carries risks with the potential for complications as do most neurosurgical invasive procedures. Mr F. was confused with regards to the best treatment to choose. He then made the decision to contact Medix.

Mr F. was appointed a dedicated case management team and a detailed medical intake was performed. With Mr F.'s approval, Medix sent his clinical records, including the imaging results to a world leading cerebral aneurysm expert for review.  An intensive investigation was carried out.

Using a clinically validated algorithm, which was created by neurologists based on data from 30,000 similar patients,  it was concluded that the risk of Mr F. suffering a dangerous rupture of the aneurysm in the next several years was less than 1%, while the risk of significant complications related to surgical or endovascular treatment of the aneurysm was expected to be higher. A routine monitoring schedule was recommended with regular imaging, to make certain that Mr. F.'s risk for rupture did not increase. If the repeated imaging showed no growth of the aneurysm, then he was to continue imaging every two years.  He was also advised to improve his habits relating to cardiac risks and alcohol consumption, which may increase the risk of rupture.

Mr F. was grateful to the Medix team for helping him make an informed decision, avoiding a high-risk surgery and allowing him to return to his normal life. Mr F.
is doing well.
