Delray Medical Center Becomes first Hospital in South Florida to Use the New Surpass Evolve Flow Diverter for Aneurysms

 It is the first 64-wire cobalt chromium flow diverter in the U.S. designed to re-direct blood flow and promote aneurysm healing Delray Beach, Fla
 
October 2nd 2020 - -Delray Medical Center is the first hospital in South Florida to use the Surpass Evolve Flow Diverter for aneurysm patients.  This device is the first 64-wire cobalt chromium flow diverter designed to re-direct blood flow and promote aneurysm healing. Dr. Dennys Reyes is the first surgeon to use this technology.
 
“Surpass Evolve is a cutting-edge technology that is advancing the frontiers of patient care in aneurysm treatment, “said Dr. Dennys Reyes, neurointerventionalist on staff at Delray Medical Center.  “Treating at risk intracranial aneurysms before they rupture is a focus of our stroke program that can help save lives and provide some of the best care in the community.”
 
An aneurysm occurs when part of a blood vessel becomes weak, causing the vessel to balloon or bulge and fill with blood. Aneurysms can occur in any blood vessel in the body. However, brain aneurysms are the most life-threatening. If left untreated, the aneurysm may continue to weaken until it bursts and bleeds into the brain. Almost 500,000 deaths occur each year as a result of a brain aneurysm.  
 
“It has been very rewarding to see technology like this help our patients get neurological care close to home,” said Maggie Gill, chief executive officer of the Palm Beach Health Network and Delray Medical Center. “We continue to see outcomes in patients that could have been avoided if they had come to the hospital sooner and not delayed care.  We have the proper protocols in place to deliver care safely.”
 
Delray Medical Center has the advanced technology and services to help with any neurological issues.  As a member of the Advanced Neuroscience Network, an integrated delivery system of medical professionals and hospitals focused on offering a full continuum of neurological care throughout South Florida, we focus on everything from prevention and diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation.
