UCLA Brain Attack! '19 Symposium

Course Description

The UCLA Comprehensive Stroke Center presents its annual Brain Attack symposium to review the practical, clinical aspects of stroke prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The course will cover stroke risk factors, diagnostic testing, and medical and interventional therapy.

Intravenous thrombolysis and neuroendovascular thrombectomy are highly effective techniques for treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The results of recent studies indicate that these reperfusion therapies are beneficial up to 4.5-6 hours after symptom onset in most patients, and up to 24 hours in imaging selected patients. A highly coordinated team approach is required to provide these treatments safely and effectively.

Neuroimaging techniques are playing an increasingly important role in the evaluation of stroke patients. Faculty will provide an in-depth discussion of innovative MR and CT techniques.

Target Audience

Neurologists, neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, emergency physicians, family practice physicians, internists, and other health care professionals who want to enhance their knowledge of the management of patients with cerebrovascular diseases.
