A neurosurgery team from Coimbra University Hospital implanted an innovative device on an hemorrhagic stroke patient.

The system consists on a transformational technology that provides a controlled fluid exchange system, allowing the neurosurgeons to actively manage intracranual pressure and CSF drainage.

With this new device, that hospital unit hopes to “significantly contribute to improve the results of the treatment of this serious pathology“.
