Description

Neurointerventional radiology is evolving into a rarified and complex field, with more people today training to become neurointerventionalists than ever before. With these developments comes a need for a unified handbook of techniques and essential literature. In Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique, Mark Harrigan and John Deveikis present the first practical guide to endovascular methods and provide a viable reference work for neurovascular anatomy and cerebrovascular disease from a neurointerventionalist's perspective. This new gold-standard reference covers the fundamental techniques and core philosophies of Neurointerventional radiology, while creating a manual that offers structure and standardization to the field. Authoritative and concise, Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique is the must-have work for today's neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and interventional radiologists.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "The purpose of this book is to demonstrate the most used basic and advanced neurointerventional techniques. Radiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, cardiologists, and interventional neuroradiologists are the main audiences for this book. ... It is a practical guide to the anatomy as presented. ... The illustrations are well done and the references are up-to-date ... . This is an excellent pocket reference in neuroendovascular surgery. ... It belongs in any fellow's lab coat pocket and in any large academic library." (Celso Agner, Doody's Review Service, July, 2009) "The book is intentionally presented in a simplistic form. The major points are presented in bullet statements, containing the critical information that would be required by an interventionalist. ... the figures provided are quite useful and are a useful adjunct to the descriptions given in the text. As a whole, this book is a welcome addition to the literature of Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology. ... Both residents and fellows early in their training as well as experienced angiographers will find this text valuable as a reference." (Muhammad Shazam Hussain, Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, July, 2010)show more
