Endovascular Neurological Intervention

Front Cover
Thieme, 1995 - Medical - 333 pages

The surgical treatment of neurological disorders has always demanded the utmost of its practitioners and their instruments. Refinements in surgical instrumentation and computerized navigational systems have made possible minimally invasive surgeries which use vascular channels to access neurological structures. Endovascular Neurological Intervention discusses the wide scope of endovascular neurological surgery.

Divided into two sections, fundamentals and clinical applications, Endovascular Neurological Intervention discusses:

  • The principles of neuroendovascular intervention
  • Angiography suite specifications
  • Catheter systems and endovascular hardware
  • Pharmacological testing
  • Cerebral angioplasty
  • Carotid artery-cavernous sinus fistulas
  • Coil-induced thrombosis of intracranial aneurysms
