Topic(s): Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology, Neurohospitalist
Director(s): Dileep Yavagal MD, FAAN
Description: Endovascular therapy is now the standard of care in conjunction with IV tPA for acute ischemic stroke. This course will discuss the scientific evidence, well as tested clinical protocols for stroke systems of care, and clinical case scenarios to drive home critical learning for the student and practitioner. Faculty will also review rapid advances that have occurred in endovascular therapy to aneurysms, AVMs, and dural AVFistulas. Most notably, faculty will review the most important data including meta-analysis and real-world registry data that have accrued since the landmark RCTs for endovascular mechanical thrombectomy in 2015. Furthermore, faculty will review the indications, safety, and efficacy of several new devices and recent clinical trial data available for endovascular treatment of hemorrhagic CVD. 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 the latest clinical trials. Participants will also be able to discuss how to tailor application of neuroendovascular therapies in individual case scenarios.
