Miami Neuroscience Symposium/2012 Miami Neuro Symposium

  1. 1. Miami Neuro Symposium Friday-Saturday, December 7-8, 2012 Biltmore Hotel Coral Gables, FloridaGuilherme Dabus, M.D. ■ Italo Linfante, M.D. ■ Karel Fuentes, M.D. Sergio González-Arias, M.D., Ph.D. Symposium Directors Registration online now at
  2. 2. Miami Neuro SymposiumFriday-Saturday, December 7-8, 2012 ■ Biltmore Hotel, Coral Gables, FloridaTarget AudienceNeurologists, neurosurgeons, spine surgeons, stroke neurologists, neuroradiologists, diagnostic radiologists,critical care physicians, neurointensivists, emergency medicine physicians, internal medicine physicians,interventional neuroradiologists, critical care nurses, neuroscience nurses, neurosurgery nurses, nursepractitioners, radiology technologists and clinical pharmacists.OverviewThe Miami Neuro Symposium brings together three established neuro meetings:KNOCK OUT STROKE ■ NEUROCRITICAL CARE ■ SPINE SURGERYParticipants will benefit from education in these varied and important neuroscience specialties as they explorecutting-edge research results and advances in diagnostic and treatment strategies presented by world-renownedclinical and surgical neuroscience experts. Faculty will cover best-practice treatment strategies with acomprehensive focus on safety; advances in strategies for proper assessment and optimal treatment ofacute stroke; aggressive approaches to treatment of critically ill neurologic patients; and recent advances indiagnostic and surgical approaches to spinal disorders.Educational ObjectivesKNOCK OUT STROKEUpon completion of this session, participants should be better able to:■ Utilize appropriate neuroimaging techniques to improve accuracy of treatment selection for acute stroke patients.■ Identify the benefits and pitfalls of CT angiography, CT perfusion and MRI in acute stroke imaging.■ Assess available options for acute ischemic stroke therapy, and review evidence-based data on endovascular approaches.■ Recognize indications for hemicraniectomy to relieve the increased intracranial pressure and brain tissue shifts that occur in the setting of large cerebral hemisphere mass, or space-occupying lesions.■ Compare and contrast available treatment options for patients with cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and arteriovenous fistulas (AVF).■ Explore controversies surrounding management of AVMs and AVFs, and detect and manage complications.■ Review the risks and benefits pertinent to cerebral arteriography and endovascular embolization, and identify and manage procedure-related complications.■ Recognize the indications for treatment of intracranial aneurysms, and examine available neuroendovascular therapeutic options.■ Identify complex parent artery/aneurysm flow dynamics.■ Examine the effect of flow diverters on local parent artery/aneurysm flow dynamics.■ Recognize progressive clot formation of aneurysms and endothelialization of aneurysm neck following placement of flow diverters.■ Review the clinical outcomes, including complications, associated with flow diverters.■ Explain the beneficial impact of microsurgery as a mainstay of therapy to eliminate intracerebral hemorrhage risk and to preserve or maximize neurological functions.■ Critically analyze the data and outcomes of clinical trials comparing carotid angioplasty and stenting with carotid endarterectomy, and evaluate its impact on stroke prevention.
  3. 3. NEUROCRITICAL CAREUpon completion of this session, participants should be better able to:■ Evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with acute encephalopathy.■ Diagnose basilar artery occlusion syndrome for better prognosis.■ Apply best-practice approaches to the use of prophylactic antiepileptics in the neurocritically ill patient.■ Implement the most appropriate techniques for advanced multimodal monitoring in neurocritical care.■ Utilize pharmacologic and cooling strategies to effectively control fever in the neurocritical patient.■ Recognize and circumvent the negative impact of fever on the brain-injured patient.■ Review possible applications of therapeutic hypothermia for the care of neurocritical patients.■ Identify the conditions for which hypothermia is a standard of care, a treatment option, or shown to be ineffective.■ Explain the essential components of delivering hypothermia in the ED and ICU setting.SPINE SURGERYUpon completion of this session, participants should be better able to:■ Compare surgical information and clinical outcomes of minimally invasive surgery versus traditional open technique for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion.■ Examine the safety and efficacy of minimally invasive lumbar spinal surgery for elderly patients.■ Explore recent advances in the treatment of adult spinal deformities utilizing minimally invasive surgical techniques, and assess the outcomes with regard to safety and efficacy.■ Identify the benefits of a lateral approach using cages in the treatment of mild sagittal imbalance, and explain radiological correction, clinical improvement and safety enhancements.■ Examine a hybrid minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows for minimization of muscular dissection, and discuss the impact on mobilization, morbidity and postoperative pain medication requirements.■ Describe the indications for use of highly specialized cutting-edge tools, such as computer navigation and nerve monitoring, in minimally invasive spine surgery.■ Explain the potential use of lateral applications to the spine and recognize their safety and effectiveness as part of the treatment of spinal deformities.
