The “Neurointervention & stroke” (also known as Interventional Neurology / Endovascular Neurosurgery), is a subspecialty of Neurosciences specialises in advanced minimally invasive techniques used for the treatment of stroke and complex neurovascular diseases of the brain and spine.
Neurointerventional procedures are performed through a small hole in the skin usually in the groin. Through this miniature portal, tiny catheters or tubes are placed and guided to their intended targets in the arteries and veins of the brain, head/neck, or spinal cord. The procedures are performed in sophisticated Neurointervention Suits with the help of cutting edge, sophisticated catheterisation technologies like 3D-RA, Road-map, Vaso-CT, Flat Panel CT etc. (Neurointervention catheterisation laboratory) to precisely guide its catheters and devices into the arteries and veins of the highly sensitive neural structures of the brain and spinal cord. Once reached to the target point of the disease and precisely judged, micro-devices that are amongst the most innovative and advanced available to medicine are used to accomplish minimally invasive neurointerventional procedures. Over last more than 2 decades subspecialty of neurointervention has been in the front line of the management of complex vascular lesions of the brain and spine in most effective and safest way.Read more
