||Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is frequently encountered by neurologists in practice. Proper diagnostic and management skills are necessary as ICH is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. In this course a case-based approach to ICH will be emphasized. Two major types of ICH, subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and intraparenchymal hemorrhage (IPH), will be featured. A case presentation will be followed by guideline-based information regarding diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of SAH and IPH.
This program complements C116: Cerebrovascular Disease I: Prevention, C151: Cerebrovascular Disease III: Update on Neuroimaging Modalities and Endovascular Therapies for Acute Ischemic Stroke, and C166: Cerebrovascular Disease IV: Telestroke, but covers independent topics.
||Participants should be able to properly diagnose, manage, and prevent subarachnoid hemorrhage and intraparenchymal according to major guideline statements. New study data that may influence every day neurologic practice also will be discussed.
