Today's option to treat diseases of the blood vessels of brain and spinal cord without surgery, Interventional neurology is a speciality which uses minimally invasive and image based technologies procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of blood vessels of brain and spinal cord (neurovascular diseases). These diseases include paralytic strokes, brain aneurysms and arterio venous malformations (AVM’s) of blood supplying the brain and spinal cords using coiling, stenting and embolization. Stroke “Brain attack “, is the rapidly developing loss of brain functions due to the disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. Stroke is the first leading cause of disability and the third leading cause of death in India. The prevalence rate of stroke is 1.54 per thousand. India will face an enormous socio-economic burden to meet the costs of rehabilitation of "Stroke victims" because the population is now surviving through the peak years of occurrence of stroke. Stroke is treatable and preventable disease.
