Vascular neurosurgery is a complex and highly specialized area of neurosurgery. The division offers a joint multidisciplinary consultation between neurosurgery and neuroradiology. Its purpose is to answer all questions concerning non-drug treatment of diseases and malformations of the cerebral vessels and their follow-up.
The treatments are discussed at the multidisciplinary symposium in close collaboration with the interventional neuroradiology team that carries out endovascular treatments. In some cases, combined treatments are offered, always with the goal of maximizing patient safety.
Vascular neurosurgery treats diseases of the blood vessels in and around the brain such as aneurysms, arteriovenous deformities (AVDs), dural fistulas or cavernomas.
The division has a specific operating room that enables very detailed visualization of vessels. For patients, this is an additional guarantee of safety. In addition, the equipment in this room provides the possibility to combine several treatments.
Interventional neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists work with a specially trained team. Together, they ensure maximum safety conditions during the operation through continuous monitoring of neurological functions (neuromonitoring). Then a specialized team from the intensive care division monitors patients during the first night after the intervention. After this, patients are treated in the care unit of the Neurosurgery Division before they can go home.
