Carl Nechtman, a fourth-year medical student at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, was recently selected as the recipient of the 2014 Neurosurgical Society of Alabama Student Award for his presentation on infantile aneurysms.
Nechtman gave a presentation at the 2014 Neurosurgical Society of Alabama Annual Meeting in San Destin, Fla., on the incidence and presentation of cerebral aneurysms in infants that were treated endovascularly, meaning minimally invasive surgery that is designed to access many regions of the body via major blood vessels.
Examples in his research included congenital (a condition existing at birth and often before birth, or that develops during the first month of life, regardless of causation) aneurysm in a three-month-old infant, as well as a child suffering from a post-traumatic aneurysm.
“I believe it is important both to share our findings with others as well as develop relationships that allow us to expand our network and encourage collaboration amongst colleagues,” Nechtman said.
