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, DVA, 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. New: Patient Information Developmental Venous Anomaly or DVA page. Also new: Dural Fistula with Venous Infarction case. Most recent addition in the Techniques page: Balloon Test Occlusion
- Highlight Page: How to Select Optimal Pipeline Cases and Maximize Positive Outcomes — and be sure to take a look at the recently published 5 year results of the PUFS trial.
- 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.
- Neuroangio.org is 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, neurovascular evolution and vascular neuroembryology sections are essentially simplified versions of his work, and are particularly recommended for neurointerventional trainees.
