Overview

The field of interventional neuroradiology has expanded greatly in recent years, shifting emphasis onto neuroendovascular methods that, increasingly, have become the standard in modern treatment. This shift has placed a demand on hospitals to provide a standard of care for which many busy clinicians have not been trained. Dr. Pearse Morris has written a timely and comprehensive reference for those who are interested in expanding their knowledge of neuroendovascular procedures, but have not had a specialized neuroradiology fellowship. The emphasis throughout is on patient safety and the outcome of various treatments.

Topics covered in this volume include:
Platelets and coagulation basic techniques, devices, and arterioty closure aneurysms extracranial angioplasty and stenting endovascular treatment of vasospasm dural arteriovenous malformations carotid cavernous fistulas balloon test occlusion and post-occlusion patient care spine and vertebroplasty tumor embolization thrombolysis and treatment of acute stroke venous thrombotic disease arteriovenous malformations of the brain

Neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists will find this reference a much needed and practical asset to both their education and updating their practices.
