Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel C Huddle, D.O.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a concise guide to current and future techniques and trends most commonly used by the neurointerventionalist. The book contains excellent illustrations, intra-procedural angiograms, and noninvasive imaging. "Key technical points," noted throughout the book, are extremely valuable in emphasizing critical technical issues, and subsequently patient safety. The book is well organized and easy to read.
Purpose: The proposed objective of this book is to offer a concise technical guide to the various endovascular procedures. Additionally, the book also focuses on being able to anticipate, recognize, and avoid complications. Such objectives are paramount in this high-risk field. As noted by the author, not everyone performing these procedures will have completed a dedictated fellowship in neurointervention. The author has clearly met these objectives.
Audience: Review of this book and the author's preface suggest the target audience will be primarily radiologists with limited training or experience in neurointervention (those with diagnostic neuroradiology, or peripheral vascular intervention fellowships). Additionally, the author suggests this guide might offer insight for neurosurgeons or neurologists with regards to the treatment options and decisions encountered by the neurointerventionalist. The book is authored by a notable authority in the field.
Features: This technical guide encompasses the mostly widely used techniques in neurointervention: endovascular coiling of aneurysms; treatment of vascular malformations; treatment of vasospasm; treatment of stroke. Other important aspects of neuro intervention such as room and equipment setup and post procedural patient management are also addressed. Perhaps the most helpful to those in training will be the illustrations and diagrams pertinent to various techniques. Along with "key technical points" addressed throughout the book, these are extremely helpful in conceptualizing certain fine aspects of safe technique.
Assessment: This is a well written, concise guide to endovascular technique. The book takes the reader to the next level of information from the author's previous book, Practical Neuroangiography (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1997). This proves to be a valuable book for those needing additional technical skills or guidance with endovascular technique. The book offers a user-friendly means of obtaining such information.
