Since the publication of the first edition of this volume, 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 research has been conducted within medical and surgical specialties on subspecialisation in neurointerventional therapy. Physicians from all specialties involved in the care of disorders of the head, neck, and central nervous system, including neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and neurology, are currently utilizing neurointerventional therapy.

Neurointerventional Management: Diagnosis and Treatment, Second Edition has been re-titled from the original Interventional Neuroradiology to reflect the revolutionary changes occurring in this rapidly advancing field.

New to the Second Edition:

  • Diagnostic aspects of cerebrovascular disease of neurointerventional interest
  • 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
  • The diagnosis and management of cerebral vasculitis, dural venous sinus thrombosis, pediatric cerebrovascular disease, and uncommon and genetic cerebrovascular diseases

This volume is written by a panel of today's leading experts in the field of neurointerventional therapy and edited by two neuroendovascular practitioners. The book provides background information and specific descriptions of the anatomy, techniques, disorders, procedures, and decisions commonly encountered in this field. Each chapter is illustrated with scientifically concise images, depicting pertinent neuroanatomy, imaging, neuroendovascular techniques, and related procedures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ramsis Farid Ghaly, MD, FACS (Ghaly Neurosurgical Associates)
Description: "This is the second edition of a book on neurointerventional management of many of the most common neurological and neurosurgical disorders, written by two well-known authors and 66 leading experts in the field. "
Purpose: It provides a comprehensive review of clinical neuroscience disorders treatable by interventional neuroradiological procedures. The book reviews all the newest devices and techniques in the management of each entity.
Audience: "The book targets practicing and trainee adult and pediatric neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, and neuroscientists. The authors and contributors are leading experts in the field. "
Features: The first five chapters deal with head and neck vascular anatomy and variations. Chapters 6 through 11 discuss imaging, techniques, and devices used in neuroradiology. Interventional techniques are not only diagnostic, but also therapeutic. The diagnostic procedures include the balloon occlusion test and inferior petrosal sinus sampling, while the therapeutic procedures are numerous. The book reviews various neurological and neurosurgical disorders, their diagnosis and interventional management. The interventional procedures are explained, including interventional techniques for brain tumors, vascular malformation, vascular dissection, carotid cavernous and dural fistulae, cerebral aneurysms, acute ischemic stroke, atherosclerotic disease, and dural sinus thrombosis. Others chapters are dedicated to pediatric neurovascular genetic disorders amenable to interventional techniques, spinal arteriovenous malformation, cerebrovascular diseases during pregnancy, and vertebral augmentation. The last two chapters summarize the essentials in neurocritical care and neuroanesthesia. The book goes over many conventional and newer techniques such as angioplasty, stenting, embolization, coiling, drug delivery, and occlusion. Imaging illustration are abundant with updated list of references.
Assessment: This edition is an up-to-date, comprehensive review of the rapidly expanding field of interventional neuroradiology. Each condition is well explained, with an introduction, methodology, management, complications, and outcome. The book goes over each technique in detail. Illustrations are spectacular — great resolution and many are three-dimensional. Technology has made great progress in CTA, MRA, and 3-D angiography and the book explains the basics and illustrates the imaging well. The book takes the reader step-by-step through each clinical scenario and lays the groundwork for the options, differential diagnosis, and interventional management.
