Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cerebrovascular diseases, which include stroke, carotid, vertebral and intracranial stenosis, aneurysms, and vascular malformations, are the most common diseases of the nervous system, associated with high mortality, a high disability rate, high recurrence rate, and a high impact on the healthcare system. Until the late 1990s, the only approved stroke therapy was Aspirin; however, in the last decade, both in the field of ischemic stroke and intracranial bleeding, new diagnostic approaches (genetic, immunological, advanced neuroradiological imaging studies, etc.) and the introduction of new infusion therapies or endovascular treatments (systemic thrombolytic, reversal of factor Xa inhibitors, mechanical thrombectomy, the development of new endovascular devices, etc.) have improved the prognosis of patients suffering from cerebrovascular disease, allowing personalized therapy.

This Special Issue aims to present new advances in the field of new diagnostic or therapeutic approaches in patient management with cerebrovascular diseases, providing new research data, challenges, and perspectives on stroke and vascular malformations.

We welcome the submission of original papers, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses focusing on the aforementioned topic.

Dr. Giovanni Frisullo
Guest Editor
