Complications of Neuroendovascular Procedures and Bailout Techniques
by Rakesh Khatri (Editor), Gustavo J. Rodriguez (Editor), Jean Raymond (Editor), Adnan I. Qureshi (Editor)
Neuroendovascular and neurointerventional therapy is a specialty where disseminating personal knowledge and expert opinion is extremely important, owing to the lack of large-scale clinical trials. The management of complications that occur during or immediately after therapeutic interventions is particularly challenging because these can significantly affect patient outcomes. This book presents how various complication scenarios are handled by well-qualified authorities in the field of neurointervention from three disciplines: neurology, neurosurgery, and neuroradiology. Contributors describe their management of these complications, focusing on the common principles that all the specialists agree on, and give tips and tricks for ‘bailout’ procedures to help get the practitioner out of trouble. The book is well illustrated and covers the full range of neuroendovascular and neurointerventional procedures. The book will appeal to neurointerventionists, neuroradiologists, stroke physicians, neurosurgeons and vascular surgeons for its practical approach to managing these commonly encountered problems.
