Abstract

The neurovascular anatomy is highly complex, and knowledge of the neurovasculature is essential to improve neurosurgical outcome. The diagnosis and management of intracranial neoplasms and other neurological disorders depends on an extensive awareness of the general neuroanatomy and its close relation to the neurovasculature. Recognition of anatomical variations, anomalies, and malformations within the neurovascular tree is crucial to improving surgical outcomes and preventing neurosurgical complications. In this chapter, the neurovascular anatomy and its relation to common intracranial neoplasms is discussed, with illustrative case representations.
