Herewith we would like to cordially invite you to the 19th Annual Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium that will be held in conjunction with the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN) with whom a one day workshop on Practical Neurovascular Anatomy will be organized that will precede the INR Symposium.
Neurovascular anatomy is the basis of our interventions and its knowledge helps us to perform complex procedures with low risks. As such, Thursday Sept 27 will be fully dedicated to a “case-based” teaching approach to all aspects of Neurovascular Anatomy and how they pertain to treating Tumors, dural AVF, Epistaxis, Aneurysms, Stroke and AVMs. Seasoned Neurointerventionalists will present cases in a workshop style format and highlight – based on cases they encountered – specific aspects of the anatomy that Interventionalists should be aware of.
On Friday, Sept 28 we will focus on Stroke and Clinical Epidemiology – we will have an interactive session where we discuss “how to design a research study” and we have debates between Neurologists and Interventionalists on current controversies (such as management of ELVO in low NIHSS or in low ASPECTS) as well as lectures on Updates in Stroke Treatment.
Sessions on Saturday, Sept 29 will focus on Shunting lesions, their causes and their new (partly experimental, partly controversial) treatments; as well as Aneurysms. Similar to the previous day we will have debates between Endovascular and Open Vascular Experts on aneurysms that can be treated by either approach. These debates will be interactive with the audience able to participate actively in the discussion.
The Karel Terbrugge Lectureship will be awarded on Saturday. This year’s recipient will be Dr. Blaise Baxter from Chattanooga, TN who will speak about Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Neurointervention.
On Sunday, Sept 30, the educational session will be comprised of in-depth lectures on state of the art minimally invasive surgical techniques, basic science and targeted therapies development, and technological advances such as robotics and augmented reality, presented by world leaders and pioneers in these fields.
CME accreditation is applied for. We look forward to welcoming you in Toronto. Please register here.
