    About the Special Issue

    This special issue will be impactful considering the common theme of endovascular management that make these papers a coherent collection. Furthermore, this will likely capture and encourage the rapidly expanding clinical and translational research on endovascular management of cerebrovascular disease. Relevant subtopics include, but are not limited to:

    - Advances in endovascular treatment of ischemic infarcts

    - Advances in endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms

    - Advances in endovascular treatment of arteriovenous malformations and fistulas

    - Advances in endovascular treatment of carotid artery stenosis

    - Advances in endovascular treatment of cerebral vasospasms

    - Advances in endovascular treatment of brain tumors

    Keywords: Endovascular treatment, interventional neuroradiology, interventional neurology, stroke, cerebrovascular disease
