Praise for this book: Instructive and...high quality...[an] excellent book...it fully meets its objective to highlight a very important part of both paediatric and vascular neurosurgery.--Neurosurgical Review

Bridging the gap between the pediatric specialist unaccustomed to handling neurovascular pathologies and the neurovascular specialist unaccustomed to treating pediatric patients, this text covers the cutting-edge, multi-modal techniques for managing pediatric neurovascular disease, disorders, and malformations. It contains full descriptions and insightful perspectives on the most advanced surgical, endovascular, and medical treatments for cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous fistulas, arteriovenous malformations, Galen's vein malformations, moyamoya disease, spinal vascular malformations, pediatric stroke, and more.

Highlights:

  • Easy-to-follow organization of disease topics according to endovascular, surgical, or medical treatment method
  • Discussion of endovascular techniques and tools for angioplasty and stents in children, as well as how to manage possible complications such as stroke and hemorrhage
  • More than 200 illustrations highlighting principles of disease pathology
  • Review of the existing literature helps the clinician gain a full understanding of the fundamentals in neurovascular disease management

With contributions from world-renowned experts, this is an exceptional clinical reference for neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neurointerventionalists, neurologists, and pediatricians seeking to gain expertise in a multi-pronged approach to pediatric neurovascular disease.
