Summary

Managing patients after endovascular procedures requires a thorough knowledge of the technical aspects of the procedure, particularly with regards to the therapeutic goal and the pharmacologic agents employed pre- and post-procedure. With the expansion of the types of procedures being performed, neurocritical care clinicians are crucial to the success of these procedures. The periprocedural management can lead to optimized clinical outcomes. The aim of this chapter is to review several of the neurointerventional procedures requiring critical care, along with the potential complications and pharmacologic therapies required for these procedures.
