Aneurysms and arteriovenous conditions are treated by neurosurgery. Aneurysm of cerebral vessels is the artery wall protrusion. Aneurysms are characterized by the absence of a normal, three-layer structure of the vascular wall. The wall of an aneurysm is represented only by the connective tissue, the muscular layer and the elastic membrane are absent. Rupture of a cerebral aneurysm is the most common cause of non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (more than 50%), in which blood enters the subarachnoid space of the brain.
Aneurysms and arteriovenous conditions treated include but are not limited to:
- Intracranial Aneurysms
- Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM)
- Arteriovenous Fistula (AVF)
- Cavernous Malformation
- Spinal Arteriovenous Malformation/Fistula
- Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
