Endovascular and Vascular Techniques for Residents

This is a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience to familiarize senior neurosurgical residents with the basics of endovascular and cerebrovascular neurosurgery including carotid aneurysm, endarterectomy, AVM surgery and bypass techniques. Residents will learn the basics of arterial and venous femoral access for cerebral angiography and perform these techniques within an animal model, cadaver and simulator models. Residents will discuss practice models and when to appropriately use open vs. closed techniques.

 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

 

  • Apply the basics of arterial and venous femoral access for cerebral angiography and perform these in an animal model.
  • Discuss the basics of aneurysm and AVM catheterization and compare how embolic devices are delivered.
  • Recognize the basics of intra-arterial delivery of thrombolytics and the use of mechanical devices to treat strokes.
  • Apply the basics of carotid endarterectomy and demonstrate these in a live animal model.
  • Discuss basic tenets of aneurysm surgery and practice these in a reperfused cadaver model.
