Endovascular

The Neuroendovascular Surgery program at Loyola University offers expertise in the full spectrum of minimally-invasive (catheter-based) procedures involving vascular disorders of the brain and spine. Our specialists have extensive training in the endovascular treatment of intracerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas (both cranial and spinal), moyamoya disease, severe epistaxis (nasal bleeding), and pre-operative embolization of complex tumors of the spine, neck, and brain. We provide innovative and technologically-advanced treatment options for complex intracranial aneurysms, including flow diversion and endovascular reconstruction of the parent artery. With regard to ischemic stroke, our services encompass both preventative procedures to treat asymptomatic intra- and extracranial carotid artery disease as well as urgent recanalization of large artery intracerebral occlusion in acute ischemic stroke using mechanical thrombectomy. Collectively, we perform approximately 400 neuroendovascular procedures per year.
