Intracranial aneurysms, cervical carotid stenosis and acute cerebral ischemia constitute the three main and more frequent diseases in which the endovascular approach is considered a valuable alternative to the surgical or pharmacologic treatment. With the introduction of balloon assistance techniques, even intracranial large neck aneurysms can be currently suitable to endovascular treatment. Stent angioplasty is widely used in whole Europe in the treatment of cervical carotid artery stenosis. Mechanical endovascular embolectomy techniques are actually available to be used alone or in combination with pharmacologic thrombolysis in the treatment of acute cerebral ischemia. This article discuss on the new technical possibilities concerning the endovascular approach in these aforementioned diseases.
