The complex, highly technological field of neurovascular surgery is quickly expanding, encompassing traditional surgical approaches, as well as endovascular and neurointerventional techniques. The last decade has seen increased cross-specialty interest in utilizing minimally invasive techniques to help prevent and treat cerebrovascular disease. Concurrently, there has been important research analyzing the efficacy of surgical methods versus endovascular approaches and the clip versus coil discussion is covered herein.
Written by 21st Century pioneers in the field, this second, cutting-edge edition offers the latest science throughout 1,400 pages and a remarkable video library covering anatomy, diagnosis, epidemiology, history, treatment indications, technical nuances, outcomes, and complications. Internationally renowned experts from across the globe share clinical pearls and best practices,from the research lab to the ER to the OR.
Medical, surgical, endovascular, cerebral revascularization, bypass surgery, radiation therapy, and other procedures are covered in depth. Evidence-based and transdisciplinary, the second edition covers the full spectrum of neurovascular pathologies,preoperatively and postoperatively,including:
Ischemic Stroke and Vascular Insufficiency
Cerebral and Spinal Aneurysms
Cerebral and Spinal Arteriovenous Fistulae and Malformations
Carotid Artery Disease
Organized into 11 primary sections, 99 richly illustrated chapters, and more than 140 videos, this volume is an invaluable, one-stop reference tool. It is a must-have for general, vascular and endovascular neurosurgeons; interventional radiologists; neurologists; critical care practitioners; and neuro-rehabilitation specialists.

This book presents a comprehensive overview of the basic science and current clinical knowledge on cavernous malformations of the brain and spinal cord. Cavernous Malformations of the Brain and Spinal Cord begins by covering general aspects of the disease, including the natural history, molecular biology, pathological processes, genetic basis, neuroradiology, and classification of cavernous malformations. Separate chapters then address the various types of cavernous malformations, thoroughly describing the clinical presentation and management approaches for each clinical situation. Incisive review of recent literature sheds light on topics of incidence, location, and outcomes.
Clinical insights regarding indications for surgery, surgical techniques, outcomes, and prognostic factors drawn from the authors' extensive experiences
Discussion of treatment of patients with specific disorders, such as epilepsy
Coverage of cavernous malformations as dynamic lesions with descriptions of de novo formation and lesions induced by irradiation
