Intracranial aneurysms

​Description of research

The scientific aims of the research are

  • to evaluate risk factors for formation and rupture of intracranial aneurysms and to study their novel treatment modalities;
  • to find out theo find out the role of brain plasticity in SAH, TBI and ischemic stroke;
  • to study efficacy and use of biomaterials in the treatment of degenerative cervical disease;
  • to study long term outcome of patients with normal pressure hydrocephalu.
