Vascular Embolotherapy

Vascular Embolotherapy

Endovascular embolization therapy has made remarkable progress during the past two decades, driven primarily by improvements in digital imaging, breakthroughs in microcatheter technology and coil design, and the development of new embolic materials. Initially employed in the management of musculoskeletal trauma, embolization therapy is now used for a wide range of applications. It permits effective […]

Vascular Disruptive Agents for the Treatment of Cancer

Vascular Disruptive Agents for the Treatment of Cancer

Tumour survival and growth is critically dependent on an independent blood supply. As such tumour vasculature presents an ideal target for cancer therapy that is widely applicable, accessible and genetically stable rendering it less prone to resistance. Two approaches have been explored for cancer therapy; firstly the prevention of new vessel formation with inhibitors of […]

Ischemia and Loss of Vascular Autoregulation in Ocular and Cerebral Diseases

Ischemia and Loss of Vascular Autoregulation in Ocular and Cerebral Diseases

Ischemia and Loss of Vascular Autoregulation in Ocular and Cerebral Diseases: A New Perspective presents evidence that ischemia and loss of autoregulation of blood flow are associated with the onset of the major ocular and cerebral diseases including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, low and normal tension open angle glaucoma, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Recognition of […]
