Fox News reports on the excellent recovery of the patient treated with the ELANA technique in New York Dec 12, 2006.


The New York Times (Science Section) December 19, 2006. Dr. David Langer has recently performed groundbreaking surgery on a giant aneurysm, utilizing the ELANA Technique. This procedure is featured in an extensive article in the NY Times. Click on the following links to see the slideshow, read the article and see the video "With Lasers and Daring, Doctors Race to Save a Young Man’s Brain".

"The patient is the first person in the United States to undergo an operation involving the use of an excimer laser to treat a giant brain aneurysm, a dangerous ballooning of an artery that could burst and kill him or leave him with devastating brain damage. The aneurysm was too big for the most common treatments, which involve clips or metal coils; it required bypass surgery on an artery in the brain. The laser is not approved for brain surgery in the United States, but Dr. Langer got permission from the Food and Drug Administration, to use the Elana technique on an emergency basis for Mr. Ratuszny, at Roosevelt Hospital, in Manhattan."

Dr. Langer was also interviewed in the New York Times on December 15, 2006 in reference to his opinions about AVMs and Senator Tim Johnson's surgery. Click to access the link to the New York Times interview.
