5th Annual Neurovascular Symposium

Christiana Hospital campus John H. Ammon Medical Education Center

The Fifth Annual Neurovascular Symposium hosted by Christiana Care Health System will begin with stroke imaging and treatment decision making for intravenous versus mechanical thrombectomy treatment, including decision making case studies. Subsequent sessions will explore medical and surgical management of brain hemorrhage and trauma including image guided removal of cerebral hemorrhages. Lectures on venous lesions of the brain will be followed by talks related to the risk assessment, genetics, surveillance, and endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms.

Target audience

This course is designed for primary care physicians, emergency medicine physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons, intensivists, hospitalists, residents and stroke team members including
midlevel providers, nurses, pharmacists, technologists and any other health care professionals interested in the diagnostic and treatment techniques of patients with neurological pathologies.

  1. Identify and describe the decision making process for intravenous and interventional treatment of acute ischemic stroke.
  2. Explain the evaluation and treatment options for carotid and vertebral artery injuries.
  3. Describe the evidence based research of image-guided treatment for cerebral hemorrhages.
  4. Identify current and emerging approaches in the treatment of venous pathologies including dural venous sinus thrombosis and pseudotumor cerebri.
