Olathe's Ashlyn Julian had an olive-size aneurysm that was causing bleeding in her brain with the doctors revealing that such aneurysms are extremely rare in children and there were no surgical tools available to perform the operation and they had to use the smallest adult tools available to perform the surgery after Ashlyn suffered from a traumatic hemorrhage.

The doctors inserted a microcatheter next to the aneurysm itself and deposited the sterile, surgical superglue on the affected blood vessel which then created an internal cast, sealing the blood vessel.
