Neurointervention, Embolization Materials for

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Materials for interventional procedures in the central nervous system, head and neck, and spinal disorders are smaller and more flexible than those utilized in the rest of the treatment of body or the heart. The neurointerventionalist must be knowledgeable about the specifications and compatibilities of various microguidewires, microcatheters, guide catheters, and embolic devices. Product catalogs are valuable but are often quickly outdated. Online information from the manufacturers and reliable sources, such as Medline and are essential in the appropriate use of these products in neurointerventional therapy.
