Nowadays, neurovascular diseases represent a field of enormous interest in clinical and surgical areas because of their complex management and recent advances about surgical and endovascular techniques. The difficult decision-making process at the base of these pathologies comprehends a wide series of treatment options which ought to be mastered by all the specialists facing the neurovascular pathology. This book addresses every aspect of the most common neurovascular diseases, as intracranial aneurysms, brain and spinal cord AVMs and cavernous angiomas, cranial and spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas, as well as spontaneous cerebral hemorrhages. It also focuses on the newer technologies regarding the intraoperative imaging of the cerebral blood flow. A large part is dedicated to the surgical approaches, but also tips and tricks of the management of these complex pathologies, presented by expert and world-renowned neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and other specialists. The first section reviews the anatomy of the skull base, cranial and spinal cord vasculature. The second analyzes in detail the diagnosis, decision-making process, preoperative evaluation and surgical planning of the most common surgical neurovascular diseases. The third reports the most common surgical approaches employed for cranial neurovascular diseases, whereas the fourth miscellaneous section is mainly dedicated to the peculiar aspects regarding the management of giant and complex aneurysms, endovascular techniques, and also the role of radiosurgery for specific intra-axial vascular lesions. A further chapter describes the technical aspects regarding the use of indocyanine green and fluorescein videoangiography during neurovascular surgery.The main valuable strengths of this book lie in its case-based conception and wide number of colored figures, tables and treatment algorithms. In its structured organization, this book serves as a practical case-based guide for neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, residents, fellows, physicians and medical students involved in the field of neuroscience. The book enables all these specialists to gain high-value insights into the preoperative evaluation, planning, surgical techniques, pitfalls, prevention and management of complications of the surgical neurovascular pathology. Thanks to the contribution of different world-renowned neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and experts, this book also promotes an updated overview of the most recent advances in neurovascular and neuroendovascular surgery, at the same time encouraging an interdisciplinary approach.

Is surgery or endovascular coiling the best treatment for ruptured cerebral aneurysms of the anterior or posterior cerebral circulation? In managing arteriovenous malformations and fistulas, should clinicians use neurointerventional techniques or surgery, or a combination of both? Highlights: More than 240 excellent illustrations, figures, and radiological images reviewing key concepts Detailed coverage of treatments for ischemic diseases, including extracranial and intracranial atherosclerosis Discussion of the organizational issues of integrating subspecialties and training subspecialists This text also offers you the opportunity to earn valuable CME credits online.

Neurovascular diseases and conditions, and their associated risk factors, represent a significant cause of cognitive disability in the United States and throughout the world. In the USA alone there are 750,000 new strokes each year, representing the number one cause of disability in the country. Hypertension, found in approximately 50 million Americans, has been shown to be associated with alterations of cognitive function, even in the absence of stroke and dementia. Recent studies of neurovascular disease have now revealed that neuropsychological function may be a more sensitive measure of brain integrity than coordination, motor or sensory function and correlates will with functional outcome measures. Neurovascular Neuropsychology focuses on focal and diffuse neurovascular disease in addition to systemic conditions in which cognition and behavior have been uniquely associated with different pathologic states. With an increasing number of patients being treated by healthcare professionals, Neurovascular Neuropsychology will prove to be a strong reference to consult in regards to neuropsychological syndromes.

This book answers frequently asked questions about common pediatric neurosurgical conditions related to vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord, in an attempt to fill in the gap and answer numerous questions that arises after a diagnosis is made. Pediatric patients with neurosurgical conditions are almost always referred from either primary care physicians, neurologists internists or a specialist in family medicine. Recently, neurosurgeons treating adult population also refer a pediatric patient to their colleague specialized in this field. There are over 1500 academic and private hospitals in the US who have dedicated tertiary Neurosurgery services and cater thousands of small children every year, in addition to numerous centers that have level 1 and 2 trauma care. However, there are few tertiary level Pediatric centers which can provide quality care for neurosurgical conditions. This book is specially written and illustrated for residents, fellows and consultants/attendings in all pediatric related specialties, including but not limited to Neurosurgery, Neurology, Pediatrics, Radiology, Anesthesia.
