Laboratory Introduction

Our clinical works include endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms, carotid artery stenosis, arteriovenous malformations, brain tumors and others, and its field is still increasing dramatically. Our research interests have been computational fluid dynamics of cerebral aneurysms (collaboration with the department of engineering) and many basic researches using experimental cerebral aneurysms in rodents. All of you are welcome to visit our department and laboratory.
