Physician Risk Statement

 

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks.  Laser Delivery Probe advancement into — or laser delivery in — cerebral vasculature can result in hemorrhage.  Laser Delivery Probe trajectories which transect critical cortical-spinal pathways or overdosing with thermal energy can result in patient injury and permanent neurological deficits.  Protracted patient immobilization can cause deep venous thrombosis (DVT).
