Abstract

The theme of the fourth NeuroIMC course is BEYOND FRONTIERS IN NEUROINTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY. Conferences will explore the latest techniques in neurointerventional approaches to vascular pathology of the central nervous system. To summarize, on the first day we will be discussing the latest advances in endovascular embolization of complex aneurisms, flow diverters, and endovascular device flow disruption. Some of these techniques will be compared with older techniques such as the parent vessel occlusion test. A special lecture on microsurgical management of complex vascular pathology of the central nervous system will close the morning session. In the afternoon, we will continue the discussion on aneurysms and one conference will focus on a current and controversial subject: extracranial venous pathology as a potential contributor to degeneration. On Saturday, we begin with two sessions on anatomy and angioanatomy of the central nervous system, followed by series of lectures on complex pathologies, such as arteriovenous malformations and dural arteriovenous fistulae. The last group of conferences will focus on stroke, with the experiences of centers in Boston and Jacksonville, and the results of the MR CLEAN trial in the Netherlands.
