New and emerging interventional neuroradiologic techniques for neuro-opthalmologic disorders

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

BACKGROUND: A number of cerebrovascular disorders produce manifestations of neuro-ophthalmologic significance. In many cases, these disorders can be treated using endovascular techniques. METHODS: The material in this article was obtained from a combination of personal experience and review of the literature using PubMed. RESULTS: A variety of new equipment, materials, and techniques are available to the interventional neuro-radiologist dealing with intracranial vascular lesions such as aneurysms, arteriovenous fistulas, and arteriovenous malformations. CONCLUSION: Physicians whose patients have intracranial vascular lesions should be aware of the endovascular options available for their patients.
