Cerebrovascular surgery is associated with relatively higher mortality and morbidity in comparison to other subspecialties of neurosurgery. Advancements in surgical technology, anesthesia, and intensive care have improved the overall outcome in recent years. Understanding the common complications will guide neurosurgeons to more appropriately prognosticate and formulate treatment protocols. In this chapter, we briefly discuss the common complications encountered in the practice of cerebrovascular surgery.
