"Combining the intraoperative MRI with ...

"Combining the intraoperative MRI with biplane angiography has allowed us to rapidly acquire an intraoperative MRI and indirectly confirm that the chemotherapy reached the site of interest," said Dr. Ketan R. Bulsara, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of Neuroendovascular and Skull-Base Surgery at Yale School of Medicine. He believes Yale-New Haven Hospital is the first to use the iMRI for confirming this treatment method.
The VISIUS Surgical Theatre at Yale-New Haven Hospital features a high-field iMRI that moves between three rooms for diagnostic and surgical usage. Installed in 2010, the multi-disciplinary suite also has biplane angiography in the third room to add a true intraoperative imaging advantage to neurosurgical, endovascular and microsurgical operating capabilities. The VISIUS iMRI does not require the patient to be moved from the OR table to other rooms for scanning because the MR moves on ceiling rails, so optimum positioning for neurosurgery is never compromised and typical clinical workflow is not impacted.
For the retinoblastoma cases, the Yale-New Haven setup allows Dr. Bulsara to use angiography to guide the drug delivery catheter from the entry point at the femoral (leg) artery to the ophthalmic (eye) artery. The surgeon can then confirm that the chemotherapy reached the site of interest using iMRI - all in a single procedural space without ever moving the patient.
A case report on the initial patient using iMRI, a seven-month-old infant, was published in the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery in Nov. 2012. Multiple patients have been treated since then, and in these cases complete tumor remission has been seen so far, according to Bulsara. He added that this has avoided the need to remove the eye or the need for systemic chemotherapy for these patients.
During the procedures, iMRI scans were obtained within 15 minutes after drug delivery. "The iMRI provided enhanced visualization of the tumor and the space around the eye using gadolinium as an indirect marker," said Dr. Bulsara.

Through its Right to Health Care Program, PIH searched for physicians and hospitals across the United States willing to donate their services to treat Tibeau, finally settling on Yale because of the unique skills of Ketan R. Bulsara, M.D., associate professor of neurosurgery at the School of Medicine and director of neuroendovascular and skull-base surgery at Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH).
...
Bulsara, who came to Yale in 2007, is one of a handful of neurosurgeons in the world who is dual-fellowship trained in both traditional cerebrovascular/skull base microsurgery and in endovascular neurosurgery, a minimally invasive method in which a catheter is inserted through a leg artery into the brain to treat aneurysms, strokes, tumors, and other ailments. Along with YNHH and medical device manufacturers, Bulsara agreed to donate his services to treat Tibeau.
...
At YNHH on April 26, Bulsara, guided by state-of-the-art imaging technology, threaded a catheter less than 1 millimeter wide from the femoral artery in Tibeau's thigh into the aneurysm, which had grown to a diameter of 2 centimeters and bordered on critical structures, including the optic nerve and pituitary gland. "Platinum coils about as fine as human hair were placed inside the aneurysm to allow it to clot," Bulsara says, adding that, until recently, the standard treatment for aneurysms such as Tibeau's involved opening the skull, clamping off the artery, and performing a bypass.
...
Bulsara says he was glad to help, and attributed the successful outcome to close collaboration among colleagues in neurosurgery, anesthesia, radiology, intensive care, nursing, and surgical and radiological technologists.
