The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 7 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The UCLA Comprehensive Stroke Center presents its annual Brain Attack symposium to review the practical, clinical aspects of stroke prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The course will cover stroke risk factors, diagnostic testing, and medical and interventional therapy.
Intravenous thrombolysis and neuroendovascular thrombectomy are highly effective techniques for treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The results of recent studies indicate that these reperfusion therapies are beneficial up to 4.5 to 6 hours after symptom onset in most patients, and up to 24 hours in imaging selected patients. A highly coordinated team approach is required to provide these treatments safely and effectively.
Neuroimaging techniques are playing an increasingly important role in the evaluation of stroke patients. Faculty will provide an in-depth discussion of innovative MR and CT techniques.
At the conclusion of this program participants should be able to:
• Utilize recent advances in the treatment of atrial fibrillation
• Apply recent developments in endovascular and intravenous treatment of acute ischemic stroke
• Employ recent developments in management of intracerebral hemorrhage and intracranial aneurysms
• Summarize use of telemedicine for stroke rehabilitation
