Bridgman Woman Saved By Bronson Neuroscience Team After Aneurysm



A Bridgman woman is alive thanks to the work of the neuroscience team at Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo. Laurel Rosebush said she was having frequent headaches and made a couple of mistakes with jackpot winners at the casino where she worked, which she says are errors she normally wouldn't make. When she went for an eye appointment, her optometrist sent her to a specialist for a CT scan after noting one pupil was more dilated than the other. The scan found a brain aneurysm from the carotid artery, with doctors eventually diagnosing it as "giant." Doctors used a flexible mesh tube called a Pipeline to divert blood from the aneurysm and save her life. She was able to leave the hospital just two days after the procedure.
