The therapy of vascular abnormalities of the brain and spine presents a number of difficult issues. This textbook, which is available in PDF format, is titled Comprehensive Management of Arteriovenous Malformations of the Brain and Spine. It offers a thorough and up-to-date assessment of the treatment choices, natural history, and outcomes for patients who have these diseases. Despite the fact that they are relatively uncommon, these lesions are the cause of life-changing injuries for individuals and can place a lifelong mental, physical, and financial burden on patients as well as their families. The development of endovascular, innovative surgical, and radiosurgical procedures has resulted in the availability of a plethora of brand-new therapeutic choices. The development of small molecule and biologic medicines that address the molecular basis of disease has been propelled forward by the fundamental sciences. This ebook presents state-of-the-art treatment plans and discussions on perfect therapy. Its authors include recognized authorities from around the world in the medical specialties of neurology, radiology, neurosurgery, and radiation oncology. Practitioners in the fields of neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neurology, radiation oncology, rehabilitation medicine, and other allied professions who care for patients with brain and spinal vascular abnormalities are the intended audience for this textbook.
