Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Conventional cerebral catheter angiography is increasingly being replaced by non-invasive vascular imaging methods.
In the pediatric population,
where radiation and contrast are a concern,
catheter angiography is seldom performed,
and has few indications.
conventional angiography is usually performed only when endovascular intervention is necessary. Our purpose was to review current indications for performing conventional cerebral...

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE We found a total of 30 patients,
ages ranging from 4 months to 17 years old.
Indications for cerebral angiogram were: arterio-venous malformations (27%),
cerebral aneurysms (17%),
facial vascular malformation (10%),
carotid-cavernous fistula (6,7%),
vein of Galen Malformation (6,7%),
cranial aneurysmal bone cyst (6,7%),
and finally tumor embolization,
petrous sinus venous sampling,
Catheter cerebral angiography has selected indications in the pediatric population.
Arteriovenous malformations and cerebral aneurysms were the main indications in our series,
and served mainly for treatment planning.
both intracranial and of head and neck tumors was also a frequent indication for angiogram,
in the preparation for surgery.
We also had a case of acute stroke,
with thrombectomy with a stentriever.
Compared to the literature,
there where surprinsingly no...
