Why You Should Attend
Neurovascular disease is the number one cause of permanent adult disability in the U.S; however, while much is known about the diagnosis, treatment and management of adult patients, the complexity and challenges associated with neurovascular disease in pediatric patients remains poorly understood. To address this educational need, the Ninth Annual Neurovascular Symposium will focus on neonatal and pediatric ischemia and bleeds, detail pediatric vasculopathy and aneurysms, explore cerebral arteriovenous malformations and discuss the screening and treatment of other vascular malformations. Pediatricians, neonatal specialists, pediatric intensivists, emergency department physicians, general practitioners, internists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, cardiologists and nurses involved in the care of pediatric patients with neurovascular diseases will benefit from this uniquely focused conference. Designed to encourage participation and discussion, this one-day CME activity provides an interdisciplinary forum that uses traditional lectures, case presentations, and audience polling and participation. Renowned regional and national faculty will present the most current and emerging clinical data and recommendations to support participants in meeting the needs of this very special patient population.
