Angiography of the vessels of the head and neck is indispensable to neurological and neurosurgical diagnosis. With proper equipment, the development of skills in vascular catherizations, this can be accomplished in hospitals removed from large metropolitan teaching centers. Neurological diagnosis can be verified; surgical lesions can be identified and further localized so that surgery can be carried out expediously. Non-surgical lesions, especially in cases of head trauma, can also be identified so that many patients can be spared needless intracranial exploration. The number of complications, both temporary and permanent, is small; the permanent complications are under 1% and the temporary complications are either self-limiting or have readily available methods of management. There were no fatalities in this series.
