Endovascular Treatments

Abstract

The idea of using blood vessels as natural access channels to reach and treat intracranial vascular lesions has stimulated the development of various delivery systems (i.e. microcatheters) and devices. The tortuosity, narrowness, delicacy and irregularity of intracranial arteries, as well as the presence of the carotid syphon, are obstacles to intracranial catheter navigation. Furthermore, since intracranial arteries are surrounded by and nourish the noblest biological tissue on earth, the consequences of their damage or perforation are potentially catastrophic. Several pioneer investigators have, in the past, directed their efforts to overcoming these formidable difficulties.
