Textbook of Interventional Neurology
Endovascular intervention - utilizing medicine and units brought via catheters or microcatheters positioned into the blood vessels via a percutaneous method - has emerged as a comparatively new minimally invasive method of deal with cerebrovascular disorder and doubtless intracranial neoplasms. This textbook offers a complete assessment of rules pertinent to endovascular therapy of cerebrovascular illnesses and intracranial tumors, with an in depth description of strategies for those tactics and periprocedural administration suggestions.

TECHNIQUES AND NORMAL ANATOMY A variety of techniques have been developed to evaluate the heart and great vessels (Table 3-1). In this section, we brieﬂy describe the major tests used in imaging this system. ᮣ Conventional Radiographs The most common imaging test for evaluating the heart and great vessels is the chest radiograph, which consists of an upright posterior-to-anterior (PA) and left lateral (LAT) projections. The terms PA and left lateral refer to the direction the x-ray beam takes through the body before it reaches the 26 ᮡ PART 2 CHEST Table 3-1.
The catheter, introduced percutaneously into the thoracic aorta via the common femoral artery or placed into the ascending aorta at the time of surgery, should be positioned so that its tip is just distal to the origin of the left subclavian artery. The tip of the catheter has a small radiopaque marker so that this position can be ascertained on the chest radiograph (Figure 3-22). The major complications of the IAPB result from positioning of its tip proximal to the left subclavian artery, which may cause occlusion of the left subclavian vessel oriﬁce, cerebral artery embolization, or aortic tear.
The anterior border of the cardiac shadow is composed primarily of the anterior wall of the right ventricle. Right ventricular enlargement may also encroach into the retrosternal clear space. The posterior margin of the cardiac silhouette is formed by the left atrium and left ventricle. Just posterior and inferior to the left ventricle is a linear soft-tissue shadow leading into the heart formed by the inferior vena cava (IVC). The left ventricular shadow should not project more than 2 cm posterior to the posterior border of the IVC.
