Learn how important controversies may affect your practice!

In recent years innovation in treatments for neurovascular diseases has been coupled with great controversy. This text provides insights into current trends and controversial issues regarding state-of-the-art techniques in neurosurgery, interventional neuroradiology, and endovascular surgery, with a special focus on cerebral aneurysm treatment, brain arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas, management of vasospasm, and ischemic stroke therapy.

The authors confront such controversial questions as: Are unruptured aneurysms managed most effectively by neurosurgical clipping or endovascular coiling? 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? With contributions from well-respected experts in the field, this book provides the clinician with the most detailed information available on the consequent risks and benefits of each technique.

Highlights:

  • More than 240 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
