Medical Technology Advances in the Treatment of Vascular Dysfunction and Stroke

About this Research Topic

Stroke is a leading cause of neurological dysfunction, disability, and death. Recently, inserting a coil by endovascular means has been proven superior to the previously used invasive open surgery approach to clip a ruptured brain aneurysm. Similar advances in endovascular treatment of ischemic stroke led to the advent of mechanical thrombectomy to remove the clot.

In a very short period of time, innovative medical device design has led to huge improvements in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke treatment using endovascular-based procedures, but there is still plenty of potential for further improvement in the treatment of stroke and other disorders of cerebrovascular dysfunction. The aim is to explore current advances in medical technology.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
• Translational research leading to advances in thrombectomy medical devices and aneurysm repair medical devices;
• Advances in cerebrovascular imaging and other technologies to enable visualization of clot characteristics in situ;
• Advances in medical device treatment of related vascular disorders.


Keywords: LVAD, Stroke, Ischemic, Hemorrhagic, Clot, Thrombectomy devices, Coil technology, Stents, ECMO


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
