Interventional neurovascular procedures

 

Interventional neurovascular procedures make it possible to treat diseases and emergencies of the brain, neck and spine through minimally invasive techniques. Many of these procedures were initially developed in France and involve performing highly complex interventions in the brain, neck and spine guided entirely by radiological imaging.

Thanks to advancements in physician training, imaging equipment and medical devices, it is possible for physicians to perform these procedures in a wide range of medical conditions while minimizing the risk for patients.

 

 

 

 

Examples of medical conditions that are now commonly treated with an interventional neurovascular procedure include:

  • acute-phase ischemic stroke
  • ruptured and unruptured brain aneurysms
  • arteriovenous malformations
  • dural arteriovenous fistulas
  • carotid and intracranial stenosis by stent placement (e.g., carotid or intracranial stent)
  • tumors
  • acute bleeding (e.g., refractory nosebleeding)
  • chronic subdural hematomas
