The Functional Neurovascular Anatomy course is a comprehensive and didactic review of the embryology and vascular anatomy of the spine, brain, and head and neck. The course comprises lectures, 3D anatomic sessions as well as interactive workshops on angiographic images. It has been created for neuroradiologists, radiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons with particular interest in neurovascular diseases.
Define the major features of spinal arterial and venous anatomy. Define the major features of intracranial arterial and venous anatomy. Recognize the relevance of skull base arterial collaterals. Localize the arterial supply to the cranial nerves. Review basic knowledge about neurovascular embryology. Identify major arterial variants and their significance in performance of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Identify intracranial and extracranial venous variants and their significance in performance of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Review the fundamentals of functional vascular neuroanatomy. Apply functional vascular neuroanatomy to neurovascular treatment strategy in order to improve patient safety. Utilize functional vascular neuroanatomy in the treatment of skull base lesions. Evaluate the use of functional vascular neuroanatomy in the endovascular treatment of brain arteriovenous malformations. Employ the use of functional vascular neuroanatomy in endovascular treatment of dural AV shunts. Recommend functional vascular neuroanatomy to endovascular treatment of stroke.
