Pediatric interventional neuroradiology
Todd Abruzzo, MD, has helped establish a national referral center for pediatric vascular malformations, hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, and retinoblastoma at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. He plays a major role in the endovascular treatment of children at Cincinnati Children’s. Through close collaboration with other members of the Fetal Care Program at Cincinnati Children’s, he has helped to develop a comprehensive care plan for children with vein of Galen malformations and other congenital vascular anomalies. While working with other physicians, he has helped build a nationally recognized program for the treatment of retinoblastoma with intra-arterial chemotherapy.
