Emergency surgery saves UAE man from brain aneurysm


Doctors at a government hospital in Dubai have successfully carried out a complicated surgery to save a man's life.

The 40-year-old Emirati came to Rashid Hospital complaining of a persistent headache.

But it turned out that he was actually suffering from a serious brain aneurysm.

The emergency surgery took two hours and resulted in surgeons restoring the normal shape of the blood vessel to block the aneurysm from bleeding again.
