Evaluation of the Cerebral Vessels: Endovascular Therapy
This article focuses on the major clinical findings, therapeutic options, and endovascular treatments available for some of the more common vascular diseases involving the intracranial circulation. The imaging modalities used in the diagnosis of the major vascular anomalies affecting the cerebral vasculature are discussed elsewhere in this volume.
