Where there's life, there's hope. This young woman's story embodies the resilience of the human spirit. Blinded by a tumor, she never gave up and her determination paid off. Our surgical team was able to grant her the ultimate gift: the ability to see her children once again.

LaJeanne Garcia of San Diego was diagnosed with a brain tumor and received treatment at Sharp HealthCare.

I am happy to share that I have been board certified in Neurosurgery by the American Board of Neurological Surgery along with a second joint board certification in CNS Endovascular Surgery from 3 boards- American Board of Radiology, American Board of Neurology/Psychiatry & American Board of Neurosurgery.

This has been 15 years of education, clinical/ surgical training, research, residency, 2 fellowships,submitting my own cases performed in the last 4 years for review and written/ oral examinations in both specialities.

I thank my patients who trusted me as their physician, my family who have been patient & supportive of me through these years, my teachers and mentors who have taught and guided me through this process and many fiends/ colleagues that I have made in the last 15 years.

I am looking forward to giving back- a better balance in life with friends/ family, helping many more patients with complex neurological disease, advancing the field with research/ clinical trials/innovation and help guide the next generation to become future physicians, neurosurgeons and vascular/tumor specialist.

This 80 year old lady was brought in not able to speak or move the right side of her body (NIHSS 10). She had a block in one of the branches giving blood to the left side of the brain (shown by an arrow).

We were able to go up with a suction catheter in that branch and suction that clot out within 15 minutes. The next day morning ( in less than 8 hours) she became completely normal- able to speak and move the right side of her body.

We are blessed with an amazing team of ED doctors, stroke neurologist, neuro ICU team, OR / angio nurses and APP team at our Cerebrovascular & Surgical Neuro- Oncology Institute that make this possible.

This lady in her 70s came with a chronic occlusion of her left cervical carotid artery known for more than 2 years and stroke like symptoms pertaining to the left side of her brain. On imaging she had minor strokes on that side although majority of her brain on that side was still preserved.

Angiography showed no collaterals from the ACOM or PCOM with some collaterals from ophthalmic and pia.

We found a chronic occluded fibrosed carotid from proximal cervical ICA to supraclinoid ICA with multiple small false channels of blood flow through the fibrosed carotid.

We use CTO principles to restablish flow.

1. probing and creating a channel through the fibrosis using or connecting those small false channels from cervical ICA bifurcation to supraclinoid ICA without violating the carotid wall or creating a fistula
2. Connecting this artificially created channel to the true lumen of the supraclinoid ICA and MCA-M1
3. Sequential angioplasty from iCA terminus (true lumen) though the connection ( to the false limen) down to the cervical ICA bifurcation
4. Layering of an LVIS blue stent from iCA terminus to the cavernous ICA connecting the true lumen and the newly created channel
5. Cavernous ICA to cervical ICA layering with pipeline device
6. And two carotid stents for the rest of the cervical ICA

We at the Cerebrovascular and Surgical neuro- oncology institute at Ascension St. Vincent’s Healthcare, Jacksonville FL are proud to provide advanced endovascular techniques to prevent strokes and reestablish blood flow to the brain.

We are blessed to have an amazing team of surgeons, Neurointensivist, stroke neurologist, ICU and OR nurses, techs and our awesome APP team that helped provide the best care for these patient and the St. Vincent’s community.

This woman in her fifties came to our clinic at Cerebrovascular & Surgical Neuro-Oncology Institute at Ascension St. Vincent’s Jacksonville FL with complaints of progressive loss of vision. When I saw her she could not read or text from her phone and the eye exam showed extensive loss of vision in both visual fields.

She had an MRI that showed a multi compartment skull base tumor involving the planum, suprasellar region, interpeduncular fossa, retroclival region with a nodule eccentric to the right pushing into the hypothalamus and third ventricle. Her visual nerves were pushed up, torqued and tented over this tumor. The pituitary stalk was encased and the anterior cerebral arteries were pushed up.

We took her soon for a craniotomy and surgical resection of this complex tumor. The operative video and pre/post surgical MRI (at the end of the surgical video) are attached. She was discharged in 6 days and had significant recovery of her vision. She was able to read and text when she left the hospital. She did not have any new deficits or pituitary hormonal dysfunction.

We are blessed to work with an amazing team of physician experts, hospital personnel including APPs, tech and nurse in the OR, ICU and our floors who did their best to take care of her during her hospital stay. We thank the administration at Ascension who have/ and are investing in this new growing program and are there to constantly support us in providing the best care of our patients in the St. Vincent’s community.

The surgical nuances for safe resection of these complex lesions include

1. Orbitopterional craniotomy with extra/intradural optic nerve decompression and unroofing of the superior orbital fissure to relax the optic apparatus and create working roo
2. Wide sylvian fissure split and subarachnoid dissection to identify and preserve all vessel in the circle of Willis and the top of the basilar trunk
3. The corridors for tumor removal included- inter optic space, optico carotid space and lateral subchiasmatic space.
4. The pituitary stalk was identified and preserved as shown in the video.
5. Internal debulking of the tumor with CUSA, folding of the capsule inside the surgical field and securing the tumor vessel with meticulous pail dissection under high microscopic magnification helps us preserve all these critical nerves and arteries that were encased/ related to this tumor.

Four wide neck bifurcation brain aneurysms treated by endosaccular flow diversion on the same day at Ascension St. Vincent’s Jacksonville FL

All patients went home the next day morning and were happy that they had their aneurysms treated

Proud of our great team at the Cerebrovascular & Surgical NeuroOncology Institute who took care of these patients- from prepping them in the outpatient setting, in our hybrid OR and neuro ICU.

It’s our privilege to provide state of the art treatment for brain aneurysm and brain tumors for the St. Vincent’s community.

This woman in her 40s had a injury to her larger left vertebral artery in the neck had a spiral dissection with a thrombus. She came to Ascension St. Vincent’s Jacksonville FL with dizziness. She was admitted in our neuro ICU- heparinized and transitioned to oral blood thinners.

Three days after that she was on the floor ready to get discharged when she suddenly became unconscious and had to be intubated . Imaging showed a blood clot in the top of the basilar artery.

She was emergently taken to our hybrid OR. We went up through a 2mm hole in the right wrist with XRay guidance into the basilar artery in the head and removed a 3cm clot restoring blood flow to the brain.

We then went to the injured left vertebral artery and deployed a coronary balloon mounted stent across the injured vessel and to tack up the blood clot there so that she does not throw another blood clot into the vessels of her brain.

She is back to being a normal person, extubated, walking taking and ready to go home.

We- Mayshan Ghiassi congratulate our cerebrovascular team including our stroke neurologist, neurocritical care specialist. Shahab Khazanehdari , our APPs , angio tech and nurses who helped us identify this in a timely manner and helped us save this young lady from a life threatening stroke.

First flow diversion stent placement for treatment of a brain aneurysm at Ascension St. Vincent’s Jacksonville FL.

This brain aneurysm was treated with a new dual layer flow diverter stent that measures 5.5mm in diameter and 22mm in length.

This stent was placed in a 5mm blood vessel of the brain from a 2mm hole in the patients right wrist under image guidance.

The stent is placed precisely centered on the aneurysm with good apposition against the vessel wall to achieve immediate flow stasis in the aneurysm.

We Mayshan Ghiassi, Laura McLauchlin, Shahab Khazanehdari, Elizabeth Gallo, Katherine Neely Shibani, elizabeth wirkowski at our β€œCerebrovascular & Surgical Neuro-Oncology Institute” are proud to offer some of the best imaging technology and expertise to treat brain aneurysms safely in a minimally invasive manner for the St. Vincent’s community.

These patients commonly go home the next day and their aneurysms are completely healed in 6-9 months.

This man in his 60s was brought in with dizziness, awake and talking to our ED. He rapidly deteriorated to be obtunded, extensor posturing with cardiopulmonary instability requiring intubation.

Non invasive imaging just before he deteriorated showed an extra cranial dominant right vertebral artery dissection at C2-3 with posterior circulation supply from the smaller left vertebral artery. All his intracranial vessel were open on this imaging.

With the hypothesis that he threw a large clot from his injured right vertebral artery into his basilar artery we took him emergently to our Hybrid OR for opening his potentially occluded basilar artery in the head.

Left radial access. 6 F guide through small left vertebral artery, suction aspiration through a 5F aspiration. It took us 10 mins to go up through a 2mm hole in left wrist into his head and pull this 4cm clot from his basilar artery.

He was awake, extubated, talking and following commands after the procedure.

We are happy that our ED and Neurocritical care team were able to identify this life threatening stroke in a timely manner and we were able to save this person from having a devastating stroke.

This gentleman in his seventh decade of life came to Ascension St. Vincent’s Jacksonville with difficulty seeing on the left side and bumping into objects on the left side. He was found to have an 8.5cm brain tumor on the right side of his brain.

We used computerized navigation, ultrasound and fluorescein guidance with a surgical microscope to guide/ navigate our resection and to make sure we got a complete resection.

Using a low skull base approach to enter the brain above the tentorium and dissecting/ preserving the vein of labbe using microvascular techniques helped us to achieve a complete resection without giving him any new neurological deficits.

We are excited to offer this new brain tumor service at St. Vincent Riverside Hospital Jacksonville Florida with multidisciplinary expertise including neuro oncology, radiation oncology, multimodal intra operative imaging/ monitoring and neurocritical care. The combined expertise of this team help us treat complex brain lesion preserving neurological function and quality of life in our patients.

Wide neck Left 7mm unruptured middle cerebral artery aneurysm treated at Ascension St. Vincent’s Jacksonville FL through a 2mm hole in the right with the new WEB 17 device. Patient was sent home the next day.

Traditionally this aneurysm would have been treated by an open clip reconstruction or Y stent assisted cooling needing multiple devices and two anti-platelet agents.

Advancement in technology has enabled us to treat these aneurysm in a minimally invasive fashion without blood thinners and just a single device reducing the complexity of the procedure & intraprocedural time.

Our Cerebrovascular & Stroke Team Mayshan Ghiassi Shahab Khazanehdari Elizabeth Gallo is excited to bring these cutting edge aneurysm treatments to out St. Vincent community in Jacksonville & Southern Georgia.

Ascension St. Vincent’s Riverside has become the first hospital in Jacksonville to receive the American College of Cardiology's Transcatheter Valve Certification! The distinction recognizes our commitment to treating patients receiving transcatheter valve repair and replacement procedures.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive procedure for some patients who need a new aortic valve but can’t have open-heart surgery because it's too risky.

Cardiologist Dr. Samer Garas and team were also first in the area to perform the TAVR procedure in 2012. Learn more here: https://ascn.io/3yddtKp

First case of placement of a WEB 17 device from the radial artery in the wrist for treatment of a brain aneurysm in our Stroke center at Ascension St. Vincent’s Jacksonville.

Our patient did well and was sent home the morning after surgery.

The WEB is a unique device that both fills the aneurysm and diverts flow away from the aneurysm. It is a sphere of woven wires – appearing a bit like a basket. Unlike traditional coil devices, the WEB forms to the shape of the aneurysm, preventing blood flow into it and allowing the vessel wall to heal. The delivery of the device has been simplified with the new 17 delivery system.

Our Neurovascular team Mayshan Ghiassi , Shahab Khazanehdari , Elizabeth Gallo is excited to provide state of the art of neuroendovascular care for patients in our community.
