Doctors Cured a Baby's Brain Aneurysm . . . With Super Glue?


Ashlyn Julian was born on May 16th in Kansas . . . just outside of Kansas City. 
 
She seemed healthy, but after 10 days, she began having trouble waking up, and her parents couldn't even get her to wake up to eat.  
 
That's when doctors found a life-threatening brain aneurism, about the size of an almond.     
 
The condition is rare, and curing it with surgery is even rarer.  Doctors said the proper tools to operate on Ashlyn didn't even EXIST.      
 
The biggest risk was blood loss, but doctors were able to stop the bleeding and cure the aneurism . . . with SUPER GLUE.  
 
It's been used on adults, but this is the first time glue has been used on a baby's brain. 
 
Ashlyn was off her breathing tube in two days . . . and she's going to be fine.  She should be able to go home within two weeks.  (CNN.com)
