From detachable balloons and GDC coils to the recent advent of flow diversion, practitioners of have endovascular neurosurgery been fortunate to work in an era of rapid and exciting advances. The first commercially available flow diverter in the U.S. was approved specifically for a small subset of cerebral aneurysms. Recent experience has demonstrated its utility in treating challenging or otherwise untreatable aneurysms, safely and efficaciously. The design of these devices requires learning radically different methods than those used in the deployment of other, non-braided stents.
Flow Diversion of Cerebral Aneurysms by Min Park, Philipp Taussky, Felipe Albuquerque, and Cameron McDougall provides step-by-step guidance on utilization of flow diversion technology in clinical practice. Reflecting the combined experience and knowledge of pioneers in neurointerventional surgery, this comprehensive book fills a gap in available resources. Twenty-one chapters cover fundamentals to advanced concepts - historical perspective to future developments.
More than 250 high quality graphics and illustrative case studies reinforce key concepts
Techniques and nuances of Pipeline, Silk (Balt Extrusion), Surpass Streamline, and Flow-Redirection Endoluminal Device (FRED) deployment
An overview of current flow diversion devices, discussion of coil embolization versus flow diversion, off-label uses, adjuvant approaches, and hemodynamic modifications
Pharmacology, flow diversion grading scales, and post-procedure radiographic imaging
Clinical pearls on ruptured aneurysms, intraprocedural/postprocedural complications, and management of aneurysm residuals
The ultimate goal of incorporating cutting-edge flow diversion techniques into the aneurysm treatment paradigm is improved efficacy and patient outcome. The knowledge gleaned from this outstanding resource will help residents and fellows learn to deploy flow diverters for the first time and enable seasoned clinicians to expand their neurointerventional radiology skills.

Unique neurointerventional surgery resource analyzes landmark literature to inform optimal patient management
The field of neurointerventional surgery is rapidly expanding with an ever-accelerating pace of technological innovations. While industry plays a significant role in designing new technology and defining indications for its use, practitioners need to evaluate and determine the most efficacious treatments for their patients. Neurointerventional Surgery: An Evidence-Based Approach by renowned endovascular neurosurgeons Min Park, M. Yashar S. Kalani, and Michael F. Stiefel examines the most common disease states in neurointerventional surgery through a critical lens. The unique text leverages evidenced-based data to inform treatment decisions and improve patient outcomes.
The text is organized by 5 sections and 32 chapters, including the latest state-of-the-art interventions. Each of the chapters provides critical analysis of the "landmark papers" that established the foundation and standards for modern neurointerventional practice. An example is the rapidly changing understanding of large vessel occlusions in ischemic stroke that now strongly supports mechanical thrombectomy as a viable and important part of the treatment armamentarium.
Contributions from internationally recognized leaders in academic neurointerventional surgery provide insightful and analytic perspectives
Encompasses the full continuum of neurointerventional procedures in one resource, from hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke to neoplasms and spine conditions
The reader-friendly structure and chapter formatting facilitates understanding of often complicated decision-making
The evidenced-based, multifaceted approach to neurointerventional surgery presented in this textbook makes it vital reading for residents, fellows, and practitioners in neurosurgery, as well as fellows in interventional neuroradiology and interventional neurology.
