Background: A number of cerebrovascular disorders produce manifestations of neuro-ophthalmologic significance. In many cases, these disorders can be treated using endovascular techniques.
Methods: The material in this article was obtained from a combination of personal experience and review of the literature using PubMed.
Results: A variety of new equipment, materials, and techniques are available to the interventional neuro-radiologist dealing with intracranial vascular lesions such as aneurysms, arteriovenous fistulas, and arteriovenous malformations.
Conclusion: Physicians whose patients have intracranial vascular lesions should be aware of the endovascular options available for their patients.
