Agenesis and Prenatal Occlusion of the Cerebral Vessels

  • Shizuo Oi
Part of the Principles of Pediatric Neurosurgery book series (PRINCPEDIATR)


The concept of cerebrovascular accident in the embryonal and fetal periods remains obscure. The normal developmental status of the vascular system must be further analyzed not only from the morphological but also the physiological points of view. The pathophysiology and outcomes of these disorders are complicated mainly by developmental factors.
