Abstract

BACKGROUND:

From Luessenhop's early clinical experience until the present day, experimental methods have been introduced to make progress in endovascular neurosurgery.

METHODS:

A personal historical narrative, spanning the 1980s to 2010s, with a review of past opportunities, current problems, and future perspectives.

RESULTS:

Although the technology has significantly improved, our clinical culture remains a barrier to methodologically sound and safe innovative care and progress.

CONCLUSIONS:

We must learn how to safely practice endovascular neurosurgery in the presence of uncertainty and verify patient outcomes in real time.

KEYWORDS:

Care trial; Clinical trial methodology; Innovations; Preclinical research
