Neuroendovascular surgery helps treat complex brain and spinal cord conditions. This minimally invasive procedure consists of a very thin and flexible tube (catheter) that is inserted into a blood vessel (often via the groin, arm or leg) to deliver medication, diagnostic dyes or treatments to the brain, spinal cords or nerves. The term neuroendovascular consists of neuro referring to the nervous system (brain, spinal cord or nerves) and endovascularmeaning within the blood vessels.
A neuroendovascular procedure can be used for a variety of reasons. For example, as a diagnostic tool to transport dyes to the specific part of the body for an angiography, to deliver drugs or to carry coils for the treatment of a weakened blood vessel wall.
Since neuroendovascular surgery is minimally invasive compared to open surgeries, blood loss is minimal and recovery time is shorter.
A wide range of conditions can diagnosed and/or treated using cerebrovascular surgery and interventional radiology (image-guided catheter-based techniques to treat brain and spine diseases of the blood vessels):
Interventional neuroradiology is also known as neurointerventional radiology or endovascular neuroradiology. This type of medical sub-speciality uses imaging such as x-rays, nuclear medicine and fluoroscopy along with neuroendovascular methods to diagnosis or treat diseases.
