The endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment alternative to surgical management. Technologic advances in coil design, stents, and liquid embolic agents may revolutionize such treatment. Cerebral arteriovenous malformation obliteration rates have increased with the advent of newer embolic agents and devices but complications exist, related to the angioarchitecture of the arteriovenous malformations, the types of agents used, and operator experience. Therefore, a multidisciplinary approach with combination therapy should be used. As for understanding the natural history of intracranial atherosclerosis disease, it is to be hoped that the results of recently launched and future randomized clinical trials will clarify the role of intracranial percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting.

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.
Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.
Blood Clotting Disorders
Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
A stroke occurs when blood supply to the brain is interrupted depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients. This feed focuses cerebrovascular accidents including ischemic and paralytic stroke.
Cajal Bodies & Gems
Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
