Cerebrovascular Disease & Conditions

Cerebrovascular Disease & Conditions

Cerebrovascular disease refers to a group of conditions that affect blood flow and the blood vessels in the brain. Problems with blood flow may occur from blood vessels narrowing (stenosis), clot formation (thrombosis), artery blockage (embolism), or blood vessel rupture (hemorrhage). Lack of sufficient blood flow (also referred to as ischemia) affects brain tissue and may cause a stroke.

Cerebrovascular Conditions

Cerebrovascular conditions include:

  • Aneurysms
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVM)
  • Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM)
  • Arteriovenous Fistula (AVF)
  • Carotid-Cavernous Fistula
  • Carotid Stenosis
  • TIA and Stroke

Optimal treatment of these varied cerebrovascular disorders requires experience with a wide spectrum of techniques, including complex cranial microsurgery, and minimally invasive techniques such as endovascular surgery and radiosurgery.

Whatever the condition and cause, it is our goal to maintain or restore proper blood flow and oxygen delivery to the brain as soon as possible.
