Welcome to Neuroangio! The purpose of this site is to serve as an education and information resource, for both patients and professionals, on topics related to vascular anatomy and pathology of brain, neck, and spine.
The Patient Information Section covers many cerebrovascular diseases of the brain and spine, such as brain aneurysm, brain dural fistula, dissection, spinal vascular disease such as spinal dural fistula, cerebral angiography, spinal angiography, and others. Professional Sections include extensive coverage of cerebral and spinal neurovascular anatomy, embryology, techniques, case archives, and others. The author, Maksim Shapiro, MD is a neurointerventional radiologist in at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, and can be reached with questions, comments, appointment requests, etc. via the Contact Us section.
New Pages include Falcotentorial Dural Fistula Angiogram and Gamma Knife Radiosurgery, Preoperative Brain Tumor Embolization, Yun Peng Huang Collection – pictorial essay Medullary Venous Malformation, aka Developmental Venous Anomaly; anatomical page of Cavernous Sinus; and the very important Pipeline Flex Comprehensive Deployment Guide
Neuroangio.org remains dedicated to the memory of Professor Pierre Lasjaunias. A brilliant anatomist and prolific author, his landmark publication of “Surgical Neuroangiography“, together with Drs. Berenstein and Ter Brugge, revolutionized the field of neurointerventional radiology. His ideas are ever-present. For example, this website’s neurovascular evolution and vascular neuroembryology sections are essentially (over)simplified versions of his work, and are particularly recommended for neurointerventional trainees.
