OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to systematically review the feasibility and safety of minimally invasive neurovascular approaches to brain-machine interfaces (BMIs). METHODS A systematic literature review was performed using the PubMed database for studies published between 1986 and 2019. All studies assessing endovascular neural interfaces were included. Additional studies were selected based on review of references of selected articles and review articles. RESULTS Of the 53 total…

Intraarterial encephalography from an acutely implanted aneurysm embolization device in awake humans.

TLDR
The WEB implanted within cerebral aneurysms of awake patients is capable of capturing task-specific brain electrical activities and is warranted as a tool for brain recording, brain stimulation, and brain-machine interface applications.

Optic chiasmatic potential by endoscopically implanted skull base microinvasive biosensor: a brain-machine interface approach for anterior visual pathway assessment

TLDR
The OCP device developed in this study will be valuable for both vision research and clinical practice, and provides a safe endoscopic approach to implant skull base brain-machine interface, and a feasible in vivo testbed (goat) for evaluating safety and efficacy of skull basebrain- machine interface.

Minimally invasive endovascular stent-electrode array for high-fidelity, chronic recordings of cortical neural activity

TLDR
The feasibility of chronically recording brain activity from within a vein using a passive stent-electrode recording array (stentrode) is demonstrated and neural recordings in freely moving sheep for up to 190 d are demonstrated.

An ovine model of cerebral catheter venography for implantation of an endovascular neural interface.

TLDR
The ovine model for cerebral catheter venography has generalizability to the human cerebral venous system in relation to motor cortex location and may facilitate the development of the novel field of endovascular neural interfaces.

Chronic impedance spectroscopy of an endovascular stent-electrode array

TLDR
Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy measurements used to determine the viability of electrode implanted chronically within a blood vessel demonstrated that EIS could be used to infer electrode viability and was consistent with x-ray analysis performed in vivo, and post-mortem evaluation.

Computational modeling of an endovascular approach to deep brain stimulation

TLDR
Computational modeling results suggest that endovascular DBS can serve as a complementary approach to stereotactic DBS in select cases.

TLDR
Nitinol is tolerated by the body and that it can effectively measure neural signals and electrochemically evaluate Nitinol electrodes in blood and record visually evoked potentials from sheep.

The evolution of endovascular electroencephalography: historical perspective and future applications.

TLDR
The technical progress in device technology over time and the development of the ability to record chronic intravenous EEG from electrode arrays is described, followed by the possibility of the technique's future application in minimally invasive operative approaches to DBS and BMI.

Signal quality of simultaneously recorded endovascular, subdural and epidural signals are comparable

TLDR
It is shown that there is a direct correlation between the signal-noise-ratio and classification accuracy, and that decoding accuracy is comparable between electrode arrays, which support the consideration for use of an endovascular neural interface in a clinical trial of a novel closed-loop neuromodulation technology.
