UCLA Brain Attack! '19 Symposium 
Activity Details
Activity Name: UCLA Brain Attack! '19 Symposium 
Needs Assessment:

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.

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this program participants should be able to:

  • Utilize recent advances in the treatment of atrial fibrillation and in the treatment of atherosclerosis
  • Summarize recent developments in endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke and management of the post-thrombectomy patient
  • Employ recent developments in management of intracerebral hemorrhage and intracranial aneurysmal hemorrhage
  • Apply methods to manage arteriovenous malformations and cerebral venous thrombosis
