About this book

This book aims to cover the majority of neurovascular diseases and management. The first section reviews neurovascular anatomy, the basics of angiography, and the basics of craniotomies for neurovascular diseases. Next, an entire section is devoted to intracranial aneurysms, covering the natural history, subarachnoid hemorrhage, endovascular management, microsurgical management, and vasospasm. Following this, a number of chapters are devoted to stroke including natural history, mechanical thrombectomy, intracranial stenosis, Moyamoya disease, bypass surgery, vertebrobasilar insufficiency, intracerebral hemorrhage, sinus thrombosis, and the surgical and endovascular management of extracranial carotid disease. Next, the text covers vascular malformations including arteriovenous malformation, arteriovenous fistulas, carotid cavernous fistulas, vein of Galen malformations, spinal malformations, and cavernous malformations. Finally, the book discusses a few miscellaneous topics including more recent advances in neurovascular care such as venous sinus stenting for idiopathic intracranial hypertension and middle meningeal artery embolization for subdural hematoma. 

Written by experts in the field, Introduction to Vascular Neurosurgery provides a comprehensive summary of neurovascular disease and management. The book can be used as a daily reference and serves as a trusted resource for medical students, residents, fellows, and young attendings.
