State-of-the-art endovascular procedures including mechanical thrombectomy

Endovascular procedures are changing the treatment landscape for patients with cerebrovascular disorders. At USC Neurosciences, we aim to treat patients with endovascular therapies when possible, by embolization of brain aneurysms, mechanical thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke, carotid artery angioplasty and stenting, embolization of vascular malformations and tumors, angioplasty and stenting of cranial vessels and embolization for vascular trauma. Research has shown that embolization of ruptured brain aneurysms had a higher likelihood of a favorable outcome compared to open surgical repair.
