Neuro interventions

Interventional neuroradiology is a subspecialty of interventional radiology which involves using medical imaging tests in diagnosing and treating diseases of the central nervous system, head, neck and spine. Interventional neuroradiologists use cutting edge imaging and guidance techniques to guide catheters (very fine plastic tubes) and other tiny instruments around the arteries and veins in the head, neck or spine to treat conditions such as strokes or aneurysms.

Interventional neuroradiology is used to treat:

Head, neck and spinal tumors through embolization and some of the more common conditions which are treated by neurointerventoinal techniques include cerebral (Brain) aneurysms, brain arteriovenous malformations, and brain dural fistulas.


  • Acute ischemic stroke
  • Acute hemorrhagic stroke
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMS)
  • Birthmarks and vascular malformations
  • Brain aneurysms: ruptured and unruptured
  • Brain tumors: pre-operative embolization
  • Carotid artery disease and stenosis
  • Dissection of carotid and vertebral arteries
  • Dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF)
  • Intracranial atherosclerosis
  • Pulsatile tinnitus
  • Retinoblastomas
  • Spinal AVMS and spinal DAVFS
  • Cushing’s syndrome
  • Hyperparathyroidism
  • Complex partial seizure
