Neurointerventional Management: Diagnosis and Treatment, Second edition has been re-titled from the original Interventional Neuroradiology reflecting the revolutionary changes occurring in this rapidly advancing field. Since the publication of the first edition, interest in neurointerventional therapy has developed at an increasing pace. New device development has expanded the range of disorders amenable to neurointerventional treatment and additional emphasis is present within medical and surgical specialities on subspecialisation in neurointerventional therapy. Physicians from all specialities involved in the care of disorders of the head, neck, and central nervous system, including neurosurgery, neuroradiology and neurology, are currently specializing in neurointerventional therapy.
Neurointerventional Management: Diagnosis and Treatment, Second edition is written by a panel of today's leading experts in the field of neurointerventional therapy and edited by two neuroendovascular practitioners whose training and experience represents all three major specialties involved in neurointerventional therapy. The book is intended to provide the clinical practitioner with background information and specific descriptions of the anatomy, techniques, disorders, procedures, and decisions more commonly encountered in this field. Each chapter is illustrated with scientifically concise images, depicting pertinent neuroanatomy, imaging, neuroendovascular techniques, and related procedures. The new edition includes more diagnostic aspects of cerebrovascular disease of neurointerventional interest and discusses the treatment of disorders not covered in the first edition. Nine new chapters address increased interest in the field and provide in-depth focus on a range of new topics including normal cerebrovascular variants, non-shunting cerebrovascular malformations, the endovascular aspects of cerebrovascular disease in pregnancy, neurocritical care management of endovascular patients, anesthetic management of neurointerventional procedures, and the diagnosis and management of cerebral vasculitis, dural venous sinus thrombosis, pediatric cerebrovascular disease, and uncommon and genetic cerebrovascular diseases.
