C241 - Update on Endovascular Treatment of Acute Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases

Event Time: Friday April 28, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology
Director(s): Dileep Yavagal MD, FAAN
Description: Endovascular therapy has recently become the standard of care in conjunction with IV tPA for acute ischemic stroke. This case- and evidence-based course will review this landmark advancement and its implementation. Faculty will also review rapid advances that have occurred in endovascular therapy to treat several other cerebrovascular disorders (CVD). Most notably, faculty will review data that have accrued since the landmark RCTs for endovascular mechanical thrombectomy in 2015. They will review how to organize stroke systems of care for maximizing access in our communities. Furthermore, faculty will review several new devices and recent clinical trial data available for endovascular treatment of hemorrhagic CVD, including aneurysms, AVMs, and Dural AVFs. The latest consensus and ongoing trials in the controversial area of carotid stenting and intracranial stenting will also be discussed in detail.
Completion Message: Participants will be able to discuss the application of mechanical thrombectomy in AIS as the new standard of care. They will be able to review the latest endovascular techniques for aneurysms, AVMs, and dural AVFs, their indications for application in patients, and scientific evidence from latest clinical trials. Participants will also be able to discuss how to tailor application of neuroendovascular therapies in individual case scenarios.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Professionalism, Systems-Based Practice
