Semin Neurol. 2023 Jun;43(3):454-465. doi: 10.1055/s-0043-1771455. Epub 2023 Aug 7.


In this review article, we aim to provide a summary of the discoveries and developments that were instrumental in the evolution of the Neurointerventional field. We begin with developments in the advent of Diagnostic Cerebral Angiography and progress to cerebral aneurysm treatment, embolization in AVMs and ischemic stroke treatment. In the process we discuss many persons who were key in the development and maturation of the field. A pivotal aspect to rapid growth in the field has been the multidisciplinary involvement of the different neuroscience specialties and therefore we close out our discussion with excitement about ongoing and future developments in the field with a focus on treatments in the non-cerebrovascular disease realm.
