Book Description :

Questions regarding the nature and appropriate management of cavernous malformation (CM) have clouded researchers and those faced with making clinical decisions for several decades. CMs may be seen as an incidental finding on MRI studies, or they may present with symptoms, such as seizures or intracranial hemorrhage, often causing severe neurologic deficit. Cavernous Malformations of the Nervous System provides a comprehensive and authoritative review of the current practice in diagnosis and management of these cerebrovascular disorders. Emphasis has been laid on the understanding of basic sciences with chapters committed to understanding of CCM1, 2 and 3 genes and their role in CCM biology, as well as clinical genetics. Controversial topics which continue to pose treatment challenges such as safety of anticoagulation and prophylactic management during pregnancy are also discussed. This book will be of interest to basic science researchers, neurosurgeons and vascular neurologists both in academic institutions and private practice.

Book Description :

Pediatric neurovascular malformations are rare. However, proper diagnosis and management are mandatory to achieve a good neurocognitive outcome. Among them several types can be identified with specificities for each. In the newborn and infancy, the most frequent cerebral venous malformation is vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation. It can be discovered antenatally, in neonates (mainly in cases with hemodynamic impact), or in infants presenting with macrocrania and hydrocephalus. Treatment of choice is endovascular, by transarterial selective occlusion of pathological vessels. Interventions are staged with a first session at around 5 months, adjusted to neurological development. Late consequences, especially if left untreated or treated outside the therapeutic window, are delayed neurocognitive development and seizures. Pial arteriovenous malformation can also be diagnosed antenatally. Regional parenchymal destruction could occur in the first months of life, requiring early endovascular treatment. Dural sinus malformations are the third main type of neurovascular malformation, and are also diagnosed antenatally or in the first months of life. Cardiac tolerance is usually good. Adverse consequences are mainly neurocognitive delay due to chronic venous hyperpressure or acute hemorrhage due to thrombosis of the pathological sinuses. Nidal-type brain arteriovenous malformation and cavernous angioma are usually seen later in children, with hemorrhage often being the first presenting symptom.

Book Description :

It is estimated that the functionally significant body of knowledge for a given medical specialty changes radically every 8 years. New special ties and "sub-specialization" are occurring at approximately an equal rate. Historically, established journals have not been able either to absorb this increase in publishable material or to extend their reader ship to the new specialists. International and national meetings, sympo sia and seminars, workshops, and newsletters successfully bring to the attention of physicians within developing specialties wh at is occur ring, but generally only in demonstration form without providing historical perspective, pathoanatomical correlates, or extensive discus sion. Page and time limitations oblige the authors to present only the essence of their material. Pediatric neurosurgery is an example of a specialty that has devel oped during the past 15 years. Over this period neurosurgeons have obtained special training in pediatric neurosurgery and then dedicated themselves primarily to its practice. Centers, Chairs, and educational programs have been established as groups of neurosurgeons in different countries throughout the world organized themselves respectively into national and international societies for pediatric neurosurgery. These events were both preceded and followed by specialized courses, national and international journals, and ever-increasing clinical and invest igative studies into all aspects of surgically treatable diseases of the child's nervous system.

Book Description :

Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) differ from all other pathology affecting the central nervous system by their high-flow arteriovenous shunts. Permanent occlusion of these shunts is the essence and the challenge of therapy. Endovascular therapy and radiosurgery became accepted alternatives or adjuncts to surgery. In many instances the choice of the primary therapeutic modality is not clear and arguments can be found for several options. However, microsurgery, endovascular therapy and radiosurgery differ very much with regard to invasiveness, length of stay at the hospital but also residual risk after therapy. The emerging treatment concepts are the object of this book. The result is a unique structured presentation of AVM and AVF therapy.
