Course Description and Statement of Need
Neurovascular disease is the number one cause of permanent adult disability in the United States. Exciting new treatments have shown promise, not only in preventing subsequent strokes, but reversing the effects of acute stroke. The evaluation and management of acute stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIAs), and cerebral aneurysms are in rapid evolution. Likewise, the new Joint Commission designation of Comprehensive Stroke Centers may impact how healthcare is delivered to these patients.

It is vital that neurologists, neurosurgeons, internists, family practitioners, and vascular surgeons, as well as allied healthcare professionals stay updated on these developing options and health care systems to provide the best care for their patients.

This conference provides an interdisciplinary approach using didactic lectures, case presentations, and audience polling and participation to present new neurovascular data and discuss challenging clinical cases.  Renowned regional and national faculty will present and discuss both traditional and cutting edge treatments and management strategies.

Educational Objectives

  • Identify the criteria used to recommend intravenous or intra-arterial therapy for patients with thromboembolic stroke
  • Discuss the value of comprehensive vs. primary stroke centers based on outcomes research and have a general understanding of the benefits of triaged care
  • Delineate subgroups of patients with carotid artery disease, based on age, anatomy, and other factors which influence treatment pattern.
  • Review the results of the SAMMPRIS intracranial stent trial and discuss the pitfalls of this study and the new trials currently ongoing
