The go-to resource for managing a full spectrum of clinical scenarios in acute ischemic stroke
Ever-evolving technological advances have created a daunting number of emergent neurointerventional protocols and therapies for treating acute ischemic stroke. This has created an urgent need for reader-friendly, hands-on resources. Video Atlas of Acute Ischemic Stroke Intervention edited by renowned neuroinventional stroke experts Maxim Mokin, Elad I. Levy, Adnan H. Siddiqui, and esteemed contributors fills a void in education and knowledge with interactive, case-based guidance on mastering challenging stroke interventions. The atlas leverages current knowledge and decades of experience in acute stroke treatment and device innovations to familiarize clinicians at various career stages with a wide repertoire of techniques available in the neurointerventional suite.
The book focuses on technical aspects of interventional stroke procedures including pitfalls and complications, an overview of the most useful tools of the trade, and discussion of pre- and post-procedural care. Eighteen chapters provide comprehensive coverage on the most common endovascular treatment approaches for acute stroke—aspiration and stent-retriever thrombectomy of proximal, distal, and tandem occlusions. Several cases focus on recognition and management of complications that clinicians may encounter during emergent procedures. Topics include the importance of arterial access, unmet need in current devices, and methods for overcoming these challenges.
Thirty-eight individually narrated, high-definition videos describe angiographic and procedural cases, step by step
High-quality illustrations emphasize and delineate key aspects of complex procedures
Firsthand tips and tricks enhance the ability to manage highly challenging and less common pathologies, including arterial dissection, atherosclerosis, and venous strokes
This must-have resource will benefit all practitioners involved in the interventional care of patients with acute ischemic stroke.

Neurovascular medicine has emerged as an established, semi-independent subspecialty of neurology and neurosurgery. Decision Making in Neurovascular Disease focuses on the challenging process of determining the best approach for managing patients with intracranial atherosclerosis, carotid artery disease, stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, arteriovenous fistulae, cavernous malformations, and hypervascular tumors. Leonardo Rangel-Castilla, Robert Spetzler, esteemed coauthors, and an impressive cadre of experts discuss highly divergent modalities including medical management, open cerebrovascular, endovascular, radiosurgery, and combined/multimodality alternatives.
The book is organized into seven sections: Ischemic Stroke and Vascular Insufficiency, Aneurysms – Anterior Circulation, Aneurysms – Posterior Circulation, Aneurysms – Other, Arteriovenous Malformations and Fistula, Cavernous Malformations, and Hypervascular Tumors. Chapters include an introduction, decision-making algorithm, whether to treat, conservative management, anatomical considerations, clinical and imaging evaluation, differential diagnosis, treatment options, images, clinical and radiographic follow-up, and suggested reading.
Simple algorithms accompanying 71 chapters supported by the latest, most updated information in the literature
More than 375 radiologic images help elucidate disease-specific treatment decision making
Step-by-step guidance, clinical pearls, surgical nuances, complication avoidance, and evidence-based outcomes provide in-depth understanding
Point/counterpoint expert commentary on each case provides balanced insights on potential implications of specific treatments
This essential step-by-step book is a must-have for residents and fellows in neurosurgery, neurology, endovascular, interventional radiology, vascular neurology, and neurocritical care, as well as veteran clinicians in these specialties.
