Product Description

The main purpose of this book is to present emerging neuroimaging data in order to define the role of primary and secondary structural and hemodynamic disturbances in different phases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to analyze the potential of diffusion tensor MRI, tractography and CT perfusion imaging in evaluating the dynamics of TBI. The authors present a new MRI classification of brain stem and hemispheric cortical/subcortical damage localization that is of significant prognostic value. New data are provided regarding the pathogenesis and dynamics of diffuse and focal brain injuries and qualitative and quantitative changes in the brain white matter tracts. It is shown that diffuse axonal injury can be considered a clinical model of multidimensional “split brain” with commissural, association and projection fiber disorders. The book will be of interest for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and others with an interest in the subject.

Suprasellar meningioma

FEATURED ARTICLE

Endoscopic endonasal surgery for suprasellar meningiomas: experience with 75 patients

With the goal of gross-total tumor resection and visual improvement, endoscopic endonasal surgery (EES) can achieve very good results, (comparable to microscopic approaches) for the treatment of suprasellar meningiomas. Avoidance of brain and optic nerve retraction, preservation of the vascularization of the optic apparatus, and wide decompression of the optic canals are the main advantages of EES for the treatment of suprasellar meningiomas, while cerebrospinal fluid leakage remain a disadvantage 1).

Mary Koutourousiou, MD, joined the University of Pittsburgh Department of Neurological Surgery in May 2012 to complete a clinical fellowship in open and endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery with Drs. P.A. Gardner and J.C. Fernandez-Miranda. Prior to this appointment, since April 2010, she was a research fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Neurological Surgery. Dr. Koutourousiou, a native from Thessaloniki, Greece, received her medical degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and completed her neurosurgical residency at the General Hospital of Athens “G. Gennimatas”, Athens, Greece. She has completed a clinical fellowship in minimally invasive and endoscopic neurosurgery with Prof. J.A. Grotenhuis at the Department of Neurosurgery, UMC St Radboud, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Dr. Koutourousiou is accomplishing her Ph.D. on the Endocrinology and Pathophysiology of pituitary adenomas at the University of Athens, School of Medicine, Greece.

Endovascular Cerebral Aneurysm Repair Market By Medtech Ventures

Endovascular Cerebral Aneurysm Repair MarketEndovascular Cerebral Aneurysm Repair Market

Endovascular Cerebral Aneurysm Repair Market
By Medtech Ventures
Price: $950.00 cart

Product Description

The global market for endovascular cerebral aneurysm repair (ECAR) devices has surpassed the $1 billion mark and currently stands at US$1.1 billion. The market, which has experienced explosive growth over the previous decade, has matured at the current level of technology. In its purest form, the endovascular cerebral aneurysm repair market consists of three broad categories of minimally invasive devices; embolic coils, intracranial stents and access devices. When used alone, or in combination, they allow the intervening physician to use the patient’s arteries as highways to deliver intended therapies, in the form of coils or stents, to the aneurysm location within the patient’s brain. The delivery procedure is performed under real-time visual guidance from high-powered imaging machines in a neurointerventional suite. The endovascular cerebral aneurysm repair market experienced a phenomenal growth phase that saw revenue rise over ten folds in just over a decade, from less than $100 million in 2000 to its current level of $1.1 billion. Current market leaders are seeking cost reductions and profit maximization through consolidation and moving production to lower cost jurisdictions. However, new research in endothelial biology is ushering in a new breed of biotech startups in search for disease modifying molecular targets, which could, theoretically, disrupt the market before the end of this decade. Medtech Ventures’ Endovascular Cerebral Aneurysm Repair Market Report is an exclusive update to the recently changed global landscape of this market. It provides a brief, but thorough, analysis of the market with profiles of leading participant and a solid forecast to 2020.
