What is Vascular Neurology ?
It is the part of medicine that deals with vascular abnormalities that have an effect on the brain like stroke, hemorrhage, internal bleeds, clots, aneurysms and more. Vascular neurologists are specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of stroke. Blood vessel malformations, brain or spinal cord injury, brain aneurysm, cerebral vasculitis, narrowing of arteries, carotid artery malformations, neck tumors, epistaxis, spinal vascular abnormalities, hematomas, transient ischemic attack, and more come under neuro-vascular disorders. Screening tests like blood count, urea report, kidney function tests, EEGs, CT scans, ultrasounds of carotid artery, and/or transcranial Doppler ultrasound will be performed to assess the condition.
