11th Annual Neurovascular Symposium: Neurovascular Emergencies 2019 is organized by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and will be held on Jan 19, 2019 at Hotel Casa del Mar, Santa Monica, California, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Overview: This Symposium will provide clinical updates and best practices for the diagnosis and identification of neurovascular emergencies and the strategies for optimal treatment and management of high-risk patients. Following an update on American Heart Association guidelines, content will explore identifying neurological emergencies such as severe headache, TIA, timing for a “Code Brain” call, and neuro-ophthalmological issues. Content on acute blockages, including small and large vessel strokes and posterior circulation stroke is covered along with topics that address acute bleeds, including high risk neurological conditions such as carotid blowout syndrome and epistaxis and SAH. Headaches will provide details on migraine emergencies, venous sinus stenosis, and the program will conclude with case studies in management. Expert faculty will present cutting-edge diagnosis, treatment, and management strategies to support healthcare professionals in delivering optimal care to patients with high-risk neurovascular events. Designed to encourage participation and discussion, this one-day conference provides an interdisciplinary approach using didactic lectures, case presentations, and audience polling. Objectives: • Describe recent American Stroke Association updates to the 2018 AHA/ASA guidelines for the early management of stroke • Increase knowledge of stroke assessment and apply the timeline for emergent care of ischemic stroke to help minimize its effects • Distinguish between migraine or severe headache disorders and headaches that could be symptomatic of other more serious conditions • Describe recent recommendations for diagnosis and management of pediatric neurovascular emergencies • Discuss neuroophthalmological emergencies and the strategies that can be applied to prevent or mitigate vision or lifethreatening conditions when promptly undertaken • Identify vascular anatomical variations in patients with acute blockages and the clinical differences that may affect stroke severity and presenting signs and symptoms • List current evaluation strategies for patients presenting with transient ischemic attacks, including crescendo TIAs • Use evidence-based approaches to the diagnosis and clinical management of neurological emergencies, including strokes and bleeds • Diagnose secondary headaches and describe the principals involved in distinguishing primary from secondary based on patient history and clinical symptoms Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Course Description: This course will provide an extensive immersion in advanced endonasal and transcranial keyhole surgical techniques using didactic and 3-D anatomical lectures, cadaveric dissections, and a live surgery on Day The course faculty are highly experienced and recognized world-experts in minimally invasive endoscopic and keyhole surgery. The course emphasis will be on: patient and approach selection, surgical judgement, anatomical awareness, technical nuances, complication avoidance, maintaining quality of life and optimizing clinical outcomes. Specific approaches discussed and performed in the lab will include: endoscopic endonasal route including extended approach variations, supraorbital eyebrow craniotomy, mini-pterional craniotomy, gravity-assisted trans-falcine and trans-tentorial endoscopic approaches and the retromastoid route. A team approach involving neurosurgery, otolaryngology and neuro-ophthalmology will be stressed as well as collaboration with neuro-oncology, endocrinology and radiation oncology. A portion of Day 3 will have parallel sessions on keyhole surgery for neurosurgeons, and endonasal approaches for ENTs/ophthalmologists. Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, learners should be able to: • Gain an advanced understanding of when and how to utilize endonasal endoscopic and keyhole transcranial approaches • Understand and gain experience with endoscopic-assisted keyhole surgery via the supraorbital, mini-pterional, gravity-assisted (trans-falcine and sitting supracerebellar trans-tentorial) and retromastoid approaches • Understand the essential instrumentation and ancillary services essential for safe endoscopic endonasal and transcranial keyhole surgery • Understand methods of skull base reconstruction and avoidance of CSF leaks and meningitis • Understand methods of complication avoidance in endonasal endoscopic and keyhole surgery approaches Course Topics: • Pre-course Principles of Expanded Endoscopic Endonasal Approaches • Pre-course The Sinonasal Corridor • Pre-course Anatomy of the Sinonasal Tract & Skull Base (Extradural) • Pre-course Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves and Cerebral Circulation (Extradural) • Pre-course Reconstruction of the Skull Base: From Free Grafting to Vascularized Flaps • Pre-course Sagittal Plane EEA Modules I: Trans-sellar, Trans-planum, and Trans-cribiform • Pre-course Practical Approach to Imaging of the Cranial Base • Pre-course Endovascular Approach: How I can get you out of trouble (even deep, deep, deep...trouble) • Pre-course Sagittal Plane Modules II: Trans-clival, Trans-odontoid • Pre-course Trans-orbital Endonasal Approaches • Pre-course Endoscopic Anterior Skull Base Resection for Sinonasal Malignancy: Principles and Outcomes • Pre-course Anatomical Basis for the Transpterygoid Approaches • Pre-course Coronal Plane Modules • Pre-course Supraorbital Eyebrow Craniotomy • Pre-course Trans-falcine Gravity-Assisted Craniotomy • Pre-course Supracerebellar Trans-tentorial Gravity-Assisted Craniotomy In addition, we will provide copies of the prosection videos, a dissection manual in .pdf format, and references. We encourage the participants to go over this material before the course.
