The Present and Future of Cerebrovascular Surgery.

It is not an easy task to imagine what will happen to cerebrovascular surgery in the twenty-first century, considering the tremendous developments that have occurred during the past decades. This review paper is attempted to address the present and future of cerebrovascular surgery on the basis of author's experience of cerebrovascular diseases during the past 30 years. Cerebrovascular surgery has been recognized as a subspecialty of neurosurgery that requires utmost technical challenge and precision in all of medicine. Cerebrovascular surgery has achieved much that we can proud of. However, as forward-thinking cerebrovascular surgeons, our concern isn't with past glories. They would tackle questions of natural history, scientific assessment of therapy, outcomes sciences, and molecular basis of cerebrovascular disease. They would remain at the forefront of research in stroke and brain protection, and would succeed at the integration of endovascular, radiosurgical, and pharmacological tools into a truly multidisciplinary armamentarium.
Key Words: Cerebrovascular diseases; Aneurysm; Vascular malformation; Intracerebral hemorrhage; Ischemic stroke; Neurointervention
