Vascular neurosurgery is a complicated subspecialty that deals with brain and spinal cord injuries caused by haemorrhages or strokes. Due to the high technical requirements and the impact that these conditions can have on the patient’s life and work, it is a very difficult subspecialty.
Vascular neurosurgery is a broad term that encompasses arterial aneurysms, vascular malformations, and dural arteriovenous fistulas. It also treats cavernomas, which are lesions that fall anywhere between vascular and tumoral lesions, as well as certain diseases that may result in cerebral infarctions. Here’s a rundown of some of the problems that vascular neurosurgery can help with:
An intracranial or intracerebral aneurysm is a weak or thin spot on a blood vessel in the brain that swells as it fills with blood. They can be discovered by chance during a study for another disease, or they can be symptomatic. They should be treated with microsurgery or endovascular therapy if they are symptomatic. The aim is to completely eliminate the aneurysm from circulation. Those that have shown growth or are abnormal should be handled, even though they are asymptomatic, due to the possibility of rupture. A cerebral aneurysm must be evaluated by a neurosurgeon who has considerable experience.
The majority of people are diagnosed after they start bleeding. Since the surgical treatment of cerebral and spinal malformations is probably the most complex in neurosurgery, it is important that the patient be handled by an experienced neurosurgeon in these situations. The most suitable treatment would be determined by the location and size of the malformation, as well as the patient’s age.
A surgical or endovascular treatment for ductus forms may be done depending on the location (cranial / spinal). Surgical treatment of arteriovenous fistulas in the spine is typically the safest choice.
Typically located in the brain and spinal cord, a cluster of irregular blood vessels. Surgical treatment is used to treat them.
