Abstract

Objective: We sought to assess general aspects of endovascular neurosurgery training, practice, and management for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, acute ischemic stroke, and extracranial or intracranial occlusive disease within neurosurgery training and practice in the United States. Methods: A questionnaire was sent electronically to 80 U.S. neurosurgeons with endovascular training. Results: Fifty-nine surveys (74%) were returned. Survey responses illustrated different practice patterns and varying management of cerebrovascular disorders by neurosurgeons with endovascular training. Conclusion: Our findings provide a snapshot of current neurosurgical endovascular practices in the United States. Peer-Review Article
