Endovascular Neurosurgery

About The Department

Endovascular neurosurgery is a branch of study within the field of neurosurgery, which uses catheters and radiology to diagnose and treat various conditions and diseases of the central nervous system (CNS).

Technologies And Procedures

  • Cerebral angiogram: A diagnostic procedure that monitors the cerebral blood vessels blood flow in the brain.
  • Endovascular coiling for Aneurysm: This procedure is used to treat a brain aneurysm. It uses a fine metal coil that is inserted inside a brain aneurysm to block blood flow.
  • Stent assisted coiling: Stent-assisted coiling is a safe technique to treat unruptured wide-necked aneurysms in the endovascular armamentarium with a low rate of complications, stent-stenosis, and recanalization.
  • Endovascular Embolization for AVM: Endovascular embolization is a technique performed to cut off the blood supply to a specific part of an artery. A catheter is used to inject a fine device into arteries which helps reduce the flow of blood through the AVM.
  • Mechanical thrombectomy in acute stroke: This procedure uses clot-busting medicine to dissolve a clot in a blood vessel of the brain.
  • Angioplasty and Stent Revascularization in acute stroke: Coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to open clogged heart arteries. A tiny balloon catheter is used to help widen the blocked blood vessel and improve blood flow and the stent decreases the arteries’ chance of narrowing again.
  • Carotid angioplasty and stenting: This procedure uses a small balloon or a tiny metal scaffold (stent) to open up a narrowed or clogged carotid artery.
