Why You Should Attend
This full-day multidisciplinary symposium on intracranial hypotension secondary to spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak brings together top clinicians and researchers to share the latest advancements in diagnostics and treatments of this underdiagnosed, disabling but treatable secondary headache disorder. Clinicians, researchers and patients are invited to attend.
The speakers will include representation from a range of subspecialties, including neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, pain management/anesthesiology, integrative medicine and clinical genetics.
There will be a professional track and a patient/caregiver track. Professional sessions will cover current aspects of clinical findings and diagnosis, etiology, diagnostic imaging, percutaneous interventions and surgical approaches. Sessions for patients and caregivers will provide an overview and update on the current diagnosis and treatment of intracranial hypotension as well as information to empower patients in improving outcomes and quality of life. Challenging cases will be submitted in advance for review and discussion by a team of experts. A panel of clinicians and researchers will have a round-table discussion about priorities for research and developments.
There is an urgent need to improve access to appropriate diagnostics and treatments to reduce the burden of suffering for patients. Join your colleagues in learning about important advancements and share your insights about priorities for the future.
