A case-based guide to the interventional management of stroke from leading international experts!
Stroke is the most prevalent cerebrovascular emergency, impacting an estimated 15 million people worldwide every year. Endovascular treatment (EVT) of ischemic stroke has expanded at an unforeseen pace, with EVT the most common neurointerventional procedure performed at most large centers. Endovascular Management of Ischemic Stroke: A Case-Based Approach by renowned stroke pioneer Vitor Mendes Pereira and distinguished co-editors features contributions from a "who's who" of global experts. This practical resource provides straightforward guidance for clinicians who need to learn and master state-of-the-art endovascular interventions reflecting the new, evidenced-based treatment paradigm for acute stroke.
This carefully crafted reference takes readers on a journey from the early building blocks that led to modern stroke interventions to meticulous step-by-step descriptions of the latest approaches. Fifty high-yield cases mirror real-life scenarios trainees and professionals are likely to encounter in clinical practice. Seven sections encompass a full spectrum of diverse patient presentations, anatomical variations, advanced techniques, complex pathologies, complications, and stroke mimics.
Discussion of emerging techniques likely to stand the test of time such as SAVE, ARTS, transradial access, and transcarotid access
Stroke mimics important for differential diagnoses, including hemiplegic migraine, MELAS, RCVS, seizure, and more
An appendix that covers fundamental terms, trials, and tools
This cutting-edge resource is essential reading for trainee and early-career interventionalists, as well as seasoned practitioners in interventional radiology, neuroradiology, endovascular neurosurgery, and interventional neurology.

Unique case-based reference presents high-yield images and expertise focused on vascular neuroradiology
Imaging in Neurovascular Disease: A Case-Based Approach by Waleed Brinjikji and Timo Krings is unique in its approach, detailing diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology cases based on radiologic findings. The book explores the key role vascular imaging can play in treatment decision making, prognostication, and improving the understanding of the pathophysiology of neurovascular diseases.
Spread over 11 chapters, this book covers a full spectrum of neurovascular diseases spanning the age continuum, starting with acute ischemic stroke, concluding with spinal vascular disease. All vascular neuroradiology cases follow a consistent format. After a succinct introduction describing the clinical scenario with relevant case images, the authors present key facts about the disease and the integral role of different neurovascular imaging procedures in disease management. Imaging findings are discussed in depth, with insightful clinical pearls on image-guided procedures and tips on managing potential pitfalls.
About 600 high-quality noninvasive images, such as MR angiography/MR imaging, CT angiography/CT perfusion, with angiography where applicable, elucidate a spectrum of findings
Analysis of the imaging appearance of a diverse array of common to rare neurovascular diseases provides diagnostic and treatment insights
Each case concludes with the most important points clinicians need to know, high-yield facts about a specific cerebrovascular disease, and suggested readings for further exploration
This unique case-based book is essential reading for radiology, neurology and neurosurgery residents. It will greatly benefit neurovascular disease specialists including radiologists, neurosurgeons and neurologists as well as interested in furthering their knowledge on the use of neuroimaging to guide neurointerventional and neurosurgical procedures to treat cerebrovascular disease.

A practical case-based approach to state-of-the-art neurointerventional techniques
Featuring comprehensive coverage of the latest developments and technology in the field, Case-Based Interventional Neuroradiology provides a thorough review of commonly encountered neurovascular diseases, as well as detailed background information on the rationale for each treatment choice. Cases center on real life scenarios with high-quality images, and offer readers a concise, practical, and up-to-date approach to the diseases neurointerventionalists face. A separate section in each case contains alternate treatment options -- including medical, surgical, or radiosurgical treatment options -- in order to broaden the reader's understanding of the benefits and disadvantages of treatments provided by related disciplines. Clinicians can rapidly refresh their knowledge on the success and complications rates of the different treatment options using the up-to-date literature review featuring the latest references.
72 clinical cases enhanced by over 750 high-quality radiographs cover the full range of vascular and nonvascular neurointerventional diseases
Interpretations of clinical and imaging findings help readers to fully understand the reasons for the treatment choice and the specific goals to be achieved
Presents tips on how to avoid complications, as well as how to recognize and manage complications
Examples of both successful and unsuccessful cases offer a well-rounded perspective
Readers are brought up to speed quickly with practical information on imaging findings, the physical exam, epidemiology, differential diagnoses, treatment modalities, the risks of alternate treatments, and current studies
This cutting-edge compendium is an essential resource for both the beginning interventionalist and the seasoned practitioner in radiology, interventional radiology, neuroradiology, and vascular neurosurgery. Residents will find the succinct presentation of cases an invaluable learning tool.
