Interventional Neuroradiology, Volume 179 provides a basic outline of the field of interventional neuroradiology that is accessible to fellows, residents, clinicians and researchers in various disciplines, from diagnostic and interventional radiology to vascular neurology, general and vascular neurosurgery, and vascular biology. This volume offers a timely update to experienced clinical practitioners in a logical, easy-to-follow format. Content includes neurovascular anatomy, vascular biology, neurovascular physiology, vascular imaging, as well as sections on the diagnosis and therapeutic treatment of neurovascular disease.
• Explores the general scope of current clinical interventional neuroradiology, both for endovascular and percutaneous image-guided diagnosis and interventions in a variety of pathologies
• Defines basic physiological principles (e.g., cerebral perfusion pressure, intracranial pressure, vasospasm, tissue osmolality) with reference to those most essential to the management of neurovascular diseases
• Discusses pathophysiology and the unique challenges of pediatric cerebrovascular diseases, as well as endovascular and surgical therapies
