Building upon the success of prior editions, Practical Neuroangiography, Third Edition, provides a detailed and richly illustrated guide to diagnostic and interventional neuroangiography and its role in the management of neurovascular disease.

The Third Edition provides the new fellow with the background knowledge needed to understand these procedures, the unusual variant anatomy that can affect treatment and outcomes, and the field’s current limitations.

Organized for ease of use, the book's four sections address techniques and safety; normal anatomy & pathology correlated with angiographic images; angiographic findings of neurovascular diseases; and an introduction to interventional techniques and emergency procedures. Actual patient cases provide practical stepwise coverage of each procedure, tips for accurate diagnosis, and guidance in clinical decision-making.

NEW to the Third Edition…• CT and MR perfusion studies address the therapeutic challenges of vessel occlusion and damage to cranial tissue. • More detailed techniques and concise patient cases combine to create a hands-on guide to successful outcomes. • Strong emphasis on radiation risk & safety put the patient’s well-being first during therapeutic decision-making. • Emphasis on the angiographic anatomy of the cerebrovascular system details key pathologic features that affect therapeutic approaches.• Companion website with text/image search and additional cases is cross-referenced to specific chapters in the text for easy access to critical information.

I am a graduating radiology resident headed for dx neuro fellowship and strong interest in neuro vascular disease and considering ESN fellowship in the future. This is a superb introductory text with really good illustrations particularly of anatomic variants and the basics of angiographic techniques. This book was very helpful when I was preparing general lectures for residents and students on topics such as aneurysms and vascular malformations. Very readable.A few cons: the stroke chapter is not up to date regarding recent trials and (new) standard of care. The book is (as titled) focused on angiography and is excellent for such. I do however wish it also covered nonvascular spine and head&neck intervention (spine biopsies, injections, augmentation, head and neck biopsies, etc).
Great book. A must read cover to cover for every NIR out there.
very good
Its useful and contains pertinent information in neuroangiography.Would recommend it for someone doing stroke /Interventional radiology/ neuro surgery fellowships.
The book covers basics and the latest trends (as of 2011) in the field and is a good practical guide written by contemporary authors.
Even though it's one of the better neuroangiography books, that isn't saying much since there aren't any neuroangiography books that I've found that are both in-depth and practical. I find it slightly disorganized and lacking in some scholarly topics and anatomical discussion.
Disorganized discussion. Confusing diagrams and pretentious language makes for a difficult read. Example: "Modern techniques of manufacture allow refinement of these instruments such that the wires and catheters each have a multisegmental composition, providing the theoretical versatility of being able to take advantage of a greater array of behavioral traits in a given team of instruments. While these refinements are undoubtedly propitious, they compel the angiographer to a greater analysis of instrument behavior whenever severe navigational difficulties are encountered. Specifically, when having difficulties with catheterization of a particular vessel, the precise point of failure in the system of instruments then in hand must be identified before an intelligent modification or replacement of an instrument can be countenanced. Exculpatory accounts that the vessels were “too tortuous” can be avoided by analyzing the precise reason for failure of the current instruments." Phew. Look elsewhere.
