About this Research Topic
Endovascular Neurosurgery has proven to be a true game changer in the treatment of patients suffering from cerebrovascular disease. Endovascular techniques have improved outcomes of patients treated with brain aneurysms, strokes, carotid disease and other vascular pathologies. In a short period of time, namely in the last two decades, endovascular neurosurgery has developed from a niche sub-specialty to being a main driver of advancement and innovation in the field of neurosurgery. New technologies such as flow diversion, stent-retrievers and liquid embolic have completely changed our understanding and treatment options for their respective disease processes.
While the history of endovascular neurosurgery is relatively young, it offers a fascinating view of the development of a modern surgical specialty over a few decades, starting with the early pioneers who developed tools in their kitchen to our current state. Endovascular neurosurgery has also many international aspects, with different countries experiencing different aspects of these technological advancement, often depending on local politics and historical treatment patterns.
We are interested in articles that further elucidate the history of endovascular neurosurgery from a global perspective with special emphasis on local historical aspects and developments in this young specialty. We welcome authors to submit original research articles as well as historical review articles that will stimulate a greater understanding of the development of endovascular neurosurgery on an international scale.
