Multi-pronged approaches to pediatric neurovascular diseases

Bridging the gap between the pediatric specialist unaccustomed to handling neurovascular pathologies and the neurovascular specialist unaccustomed to treating pediatric patients, this text covers the cutting-edge, multi-modal techniques for managing pediatric neurovascular disease, disorders, and malformations. It contains full descriptions and insightful perspectives on the most advanced surgical, endovascular, and medical treatments for cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous fistulas, arteriovenous malformations, Galen's vein malformations, moyamoya disease, spinal vascular malformations, pediatric stroke, and more.


  • Easy-to-follow organization of disease topics according to endovascular, surgical, or medical treatment method
  • Discussion of endovascular techniques and tools for angioplasty and stents in children, as well as how to manage possible complications such as stroke and hemorrhage
  • More than 200 illustrations highlighting principles of disease pathology
  • Review of the existing literature helps the clinician gain a full understanding of the fundamentals in neurovascular disease management

With contributions from world-renowned experts, this is an exceptional clinical reference for neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neurointerventionalists, neurologists, and pediatricians seeking to gain expertise in a multi-pronged approach to pediatric neurovascular disease.

Praise for this book: "Instructive and...high quality...[an] excellent fully meets its objective to highlight a very important part of both pediatric and vascular neurosurgery." -- Neurosurgical Review

An aptly titled and concise text. Complete, well-written, and up-to-date, this book is a welcome addition to the library of those interested in pediatric and vascular neurosurgery alike. It has many high quality illustrations that are a useful adjunct to the text. The editors have done an excellent job in compiling chapters on stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations of the brain and spinal cord, moyamoya disease, vein of Galen malformations, and more. The information on endovascular therapies is particularly useful in light of the recent rapid growth of this field. Overall, this timely and substantive text is a welcome addition to the literature. It is particularly suited to the general adult or pediatric neurosurgery practitioner looking for an introduction to the complexities of neurovascular disease in children. The price of $149.95 seems appropriate.--Journal of Neurosurgery

"This book focuses on a rare but highly interesting group of neurosurgical diseases...There are excellent chapters on the development, actiology and the angiographic findings as well as on various very rare syndromes that are associated with vascular abnormalities...The images and article sketches are instructive and of a high quality...The entire book contains very nice inserts that are highlighted as "PEARLS" indicating the most important issues...excellent fully meets its objective to highlight a very important part of both paediatric and vascular neurosurgery."--Neurosurgical Review

"Aims to provide a balanced view on pediatric neurovascular disease. The book does exactly what it aims to do. This is a superb book..I have not seen a comparable discussion in print."--Doody's Book Reviews
