Contemporary Understanding and Management of Cerebral Vasospasm
Vasospasm is the narrowing of the arteries in the brain following an aneurysm. It is one of the leading causes of death after a brain aneurysm. Contemporary Understanding and Management of Cerebral Vasospasm covers topics from recent advances in molecular mechanisms contributing to cerebral vasospasm, to practical microsurgical and endovascular treatment.
Other topics include, the role of MRI in subarachnoid haemorrhage-related vasospasm and computed tomography, CT perfusion angiography correlated with digital subtracted angiography, and transcranial Doppler ultrasound imaging for detecting intracerebral arterial vasospasm.
Contemporary Understanding and Management of Cerebral Vasospasm is essential reading for practitioners, including neurosurgeons, vascular specialists and neuroradiologists.
