C245 - Controversies in Stroke Treatment and Prevention

Event Time: Friday May 10, 2019 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology
Director(s): Pierre Fayad MD, FAAN, FAHA
Description: The extensive cumulative number of clinical trials and observational and epidemiological studies in acute stroke treatment and prevention allows a rigorous evidence-based approach to the treatment and management of stroke. These are very well detailed in the major treatment recommendations, but are difficult to keep abreast of in light of rapid knowledge evolution. Such reviews will be the mainstay of other courses provided during this conference. There remain areas and topics where the evidence has not been sufficient or definitive enough to formulate clear recommendations for the practicing neurologist. This course is devised to address such areas of controversy and provide the attendees with practical approaches to help them in such situations. The speakers with provide a concise review of the evidence-based recommendations, while highlighting and discussing in more details the commonly encountered controversial and challenging areas. The session will provide ample opportunities for active audience participation and ask burning questions.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with evidence-based approaches to acute stroke diagnosis, management and prevention, including medical endovascular and surgical interventions. They should be able to identify areas of insufficient evidence and controversies, including approaches to help them navigate through such situations.
CME Credits: 2
