Fellows Course in Endovascular Techniques

This course in Neuroendovascular surgical techniques will allow fellows in training a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience in the treatment of neurovascular disorders.

The 1.5-day course, geared toward fellows presently enrolled in a neuroendovascular fellowship, will provide hands-on training from renowned faculty in advanced neuroendovascular techniques using animal models and simulators.

Fellows will learn technique and complication avoidance in the treatment of AVM’s, aneurysms, carotid stenosis, and acute stroke therapy. Also included will be didactic sessions on technology, devices and career advice.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Apply advanced technique for the treatment of aneurysms, AVM’s, carotid stenosis, and acute thrombolysis for stroke and perform them in an animal and simulation model
  • Describe complication avoidance in the treatment of complex cerebrovascular disease
  • Discuss the latest tools used in endovascular therapy including stents, coils, glue, and stroke devices as well as future devices being used and developed
  • Recognize techniques used in endovascular therapy for improved outcomes and complication avoidance
