Ghana performed the first ever brain surgery that did not involve cutting into the skull. It is historic. And to me, of great importance.
When my granddaughter, Zaira, was 7, she was airlifted to have immediate brain surgery when her brain started bleeding. She was diagnosed with an Arachnoid Cyst on her brain. Now, 5 yrs later, it has continued to cause her frequent seizures. Some violent ones. Outside she must wear a helmet. She always must wear Depends. She is in a special school.
OK, it breaks my heart, but back to the OP, This is hopeful news, the first I have read about since I started researching the condition the past 5 years. What we have always heard is the condition is inoperable, only the seizures are treaded with medicine. Medicine with nasty side effects.
But I have a question. Now that this has been successful in Ghana, realistically, how long may it take to be available elsewhere? I really have no idea. Thanks.
