C217 - Current Management of Incidental and Asymptomatic Cerebrovascular Lesions

Event Time: Friday April 27, 2018 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology, Foundations in Clinical Neurology for APPs
Director(s): Seemant Chaturvedi MD, FAAN, FAHA
Description: In the past decade, the rate of neuroimaging has soared. Included in this category is both brain and neurovascular imaging. The increase in imaging has led to marked increase in the number of identified patients with asymptomatic or incidental neurovascular conditions. At the current time, there exists considerable controversy in the management of unruptured aneurysms and AVMs. In addition, the surgical treatment of asymptomatic carotid stenosis is receiving renewed scrutiny due to advances in medical therapy. Faculty will review the evaluation and management of these asymptomatic neurovascular conditions.
Completion Message: Participants should become aware of the most recent clinical trial and population-based data pertaining to asymptomatic neurovascular conditions, such as unruptured aneurysms and AVMs, and asymptomatic carotid stenosis; as well as gain an appreciation for which treatments are potentially cost-effective. Participants should also become familiar with recent clinical trials and guidelines related to these conditions.
