8th EULAR Course on Capillaroscopy and Rheumatic Diseases is organized by European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) and will be held from Sep 13 - 15, 2018 at Tower Genova Airport Hotel & Conference Center, Genova, Liguria, Italy.

Course Description: The aim of this intensive and interactive EULAR CAP course is to provide all participants with an update on the power of the safe and non-invasive nailfold videocapillaroscopy (NVC) technique in the field of rheumatic diseases, in particular for the early diagnosis of the scleroderma spectrum diseases, its predictability and prognostic value, as well as its role as a tool for the therapeutic, follow up. Participants will be fully involved in interactive theoretical and practical capillaroscopic sessions (Learning and Testing sessions) engaging a large number of rheumatic patients. Updated clinical sessions concerning the diagnostic/prognostic value of NVC in diseases such as systemic sclerosis and the effects of targeted therapies on microcirculation and immune-inflammatory reaction will represent a stimulating gym based on large clinical cases discussion. Links between the CAP patterns and biomarkers such as autoantibodies will also be updated since evolution. In particular, reading and scoring (manual and automated systems) of the videocapillaroscopic images of living patients will be discussed and their predictive value to identify possible clinical complications (i.e. digital ulcers in systemic sclerosis, lung involvement etc.) will be analyzed including in the pediatric population. Recent international studies reported (CAP study) about new predictive models or index based on a capillaroscopic analysis. New sessions on the practical evaluation of the peripheral blood flow by laser Doppler and LASCA imaging have been introduced. Lessons and practical session on skin ultrasound (US) evaluation will be also available and will be combined with the severity of the videocapillaroscopic images (patterns) in living patients. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

The target audience for this medical event is surgeons for the following disciplines: Gynecology and Obstetrics, Cardiology, Genetics, Radiodiagnostics. Course Description : The course has three components. The first part focuses on the sonographic expert diagnosis of complex CNS, cardiac and genital malformations. These organs are difficult to explore and, hence, the need for an “how to” in order to reach an adequate diagnosis and make as detailed as possible prognosis assessment. To this extent, this part includes a session on CNS MR, to clarify the diagnostic flowchart. Live Demos of clinical cases will thoroughly illustrate the technique for assessing the various organs mentioned above. The second part of the course deals with the current controversy of open vs endoscopic repair of spina bifida. Worldly known experts will present their data and illustrate pros and cons of the different approaches. The third - and final - part of the course includes three debates on some hot topics of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, such as preeclampsia screening, CF-DNA vs universal invasive diagnosis for fetal genetic conditions and potential and current guidelines on cord blood stem cells banking. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
