Description

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.

Key Features
  • Despite prophylactic measures, multimodality detection monitoring and aggressive treatment interventions, the outcome for many can remain grim. There is no question that the etiologic heterogeneity of cerebral vasospasm mirrors the variability in its clinical management even amongst experienced providers.
  • Contemporary Understanding and Management of Cerebral Vasospasm: A Practical Guide is written by clinicians, for clinicians to provide real-world information based on our current understanding of the disorder with the hope that it will lay the foundation for optimizing treatments across the world.
Target Audience

This book is meant to support practitioners, who are in the trenches caring for these patients. This book is also meant to serve as a practical resource for all involved in the care of subarachnoid hemorrhage patients.
