Imaging of neurovascular emergencies in pregnancy and puerperium
Acute neurovascular events, though rare, can complicate pregnancy and postpartum period. It is important to be aware of these clinical conditions for reducing maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. In this review, we present a few important neurovascular emergencies and their imaging manifestations by various imaging modalities—computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and digital subtraction angiography (DSA)—which presented at our institution in the peripartum period.
