Neurointervention, embolization materials for

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Central nervous system, head and neck, and spinal interventional procedures have been made possible by the development of very small catheters, guide wires, embolic agents and devices. This has allowed the neurointervetionalist to alter blood flow so that it can be lessened or stopped where it is too great or restored when blood flow is insufficient. Treatment of aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations had been made possible by the development of these smaller tools. In the case of stroke, the development of thrombectomy devices has revolutionized treatment and care of patients with thromboembolism.
