Consenting

The majority of neurointerventional procedures carry risks of significant morbidity and mortality.

If possible, particularly if a non-acute procedure such as embolization of an AVM or angioplasty of the carotid is to be performed, the patient should be seen as an outpatient and be given time for the information to be taken in and its implications realized. It is not acceptable to obtain consent from a patient on the angio table or in the corridor outside.
