Acute neurological impairment with a vascular etiology, or “stroke,” is frequently encountered in the emergency department. Acute ischemic stroke accounts for 87% of all strokes, while the remaining 13% of acute strokes are hemorrhagic. Hemorrhagic strokes include intraparenchymal hemorrhage (IPH) and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). This chapter describes imaging findings, clinical features. "Vascular emergencies are common in the practice of emergency medicine, and emergency care providers will no doubt encounter these entities on a day-to-day basis in the emergency department. Of all of the clinical entities in the house of medicine, vascular emergencies typically are the most time sensitive, and the patients with these conditions tend to be the sickest. Most vascular emergencies are due to either disruption of the blood vessel wall with bleeding (eg, from penetrating trauma) or to occlusion of the blood vessel lumen (eg, by an embolus or thrombus). The major consequences of these events are blood loss or acute distal ischemia. Vascular endothelium of the brain has a multitude of regulatory functions that impact vascular tone, inflammatory responses, oxidative stress, angiogenesis, and thrombosis and hemostasis. Brain capillary endothelium is the critical interface of the blood–brain barrier, with a wide range of specific functional and structural components.
The use of cocaine or amphetamine derivatives is considered a strong risk factor for stroke or other forms of acute cerebrovascular emergencies (Heye & Hankey, ; McEvoy, Kitchen & Thomas, ; Perez et al., ; Petitti, Sidney, Queensbury & Bernstein, ; Qureshi et al., ).Mechanistic processes that mediate cocaine's effects on the cerebral vasculature are not well understood, but. Cerebral revascularization Non vascular aspects of interventional neuroradiology include pain management, percutaneous biopsies and vertebroplasty. • Cath lab.-known as ―operating room‖ or ―special procedures room‖.• Radiographic Imaging Equipments• Biplane angiography with digital subtraction ability, high resolution image.

The brain and spinal cord are protected by bony structures, membranes, and fluid. The brain is held in the cranial cavity of the skull and it consists of the cerebrum, cerebellum, and the brain stem.

The cerebrospinal vasculature originates at the aortic arch. The right brachiocephalic divides into the right common carotid and subclavian artery. The left common carotid and left subclavian arteries arise directly from the aortic arch. The 2 common carotid arteries bifurcate into the internal and external carotid arteries. The anterior circulation of the brain includes the distal branches.
