Nothing Shall Be Impossible

The following cerebral vascular disorders are treated at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital:

  • Cerebral Aneurysms: An aneurysm is a weak area in the wall of a blood vessel that causes the blood vessel to bulge or balloon out.
  • Arteriovenous Malformation:  An arteriovenous malformation is an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins in the brain that typically form before birth.  They can cause bleeding, seizures or steal blood from the brain.
  • Cavernous Malformations: Also known as cavernous angiomas, cavernomas, and cavernoma hemangiomas. These are vascular channels that can bleed or cause seizure.
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia: This is nerve disorder causes a stabbing or electric shock pain in parts of the face.  It can affect part or all of the face and even the surface of the eye.
  • Moyamoya Disease: This disease causes blood vessels to the brain to become constricted and disappear into a "puff of smoke," causing a stroke.
