Superglue Saves Baby

Bradley Mattes   |   July 17, 2013

Sometimes all you need is a little superglue to save a life. Ashlyn Julian was only three weeks old when she began to constantly scream in pain and spit up, so her mother rushed her to the hospital. Doctors at Mercy Hospital in Kansas City found the cause of Ashlyn’s pain. It was an almond-sized aneurysm in her brain, which is very rare in infants. At first they had no idea how to treat their tiny patient. Then a neurosurgeon decided to take a chance. Using a tiny, hair-thin catheter, he entered through Ashlyn’s neck to reach the aneurysm and sealed it off with surgical superglue. Her doctors were surprised when it took only one day for her to bounce back. After a few days in the hospital, Ashlyn went home with her parents. Thank God for a creative doctor.
