Gliederung

Text

The endovascular therapy of the craniocerebral and spinal diseases represents a very important aspect in solving efficiently a various type of pathology: cerebral aneurysm, arteriovenous malformations, arterial stenosis, tumoral etc.

Although this procedure requests an advanced infrastructure and many devices (as stents, coils, micro catheters, embolisation materials etc) it started to be used efficiently as well in Romania.

A team composed of both Neurosurgeons and Cardiologists from University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Gr. T. Popa" Iasi, Romania working under the coordination of Professor Patrick COURTHEOUX (Neuroradiologist from CHU-Caen, France) have realized the first steps in November 2004. They began with implementing a stent for the exclusion of an aneurysm of the basilar trunk, a partial embolisation of a Spetzer V parietal left AVM and an embolisation of an important parietal left meningioma (en plaque).

For us it is a new beginning in this very important neurosurgical field so we hope that in the future will frequently be able to use these techniques in order to solve this type of cases.

Our poster proposes to present the first cases resolved in this way in Romania.
