Learning Objectives ________________

Interventional Thrombectomy in Acute Stroke
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to 
• Cite the evidence that shows endovascular thrombectomy is the standard of care for patients with emergent large-vessel occlusion.
• Explain the results that led to guideline recommendations advocating for endovascular treatment in addition to t-PA.

 

High-resolution Wall Imaging in Intracranial Arterial Disease (Parts 1 & 2)
Learning Objective
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to
• Examine the feasibility and clinical value of high-resolution magnetic resonance vessel wall imaging for intracranial arterial stenosis.

 

Update of Stroke Trials: Extending the Window 
Learning Objective
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to
• Evaluate the evidence of current stroke trials with regard to extending the window of treatment for some stroke patients.      
 
Stroke in the Cancer Patient
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to
• Describe relevant data linking stroke and cancer.
• Explain a testable algorithm for cryptogenic stroke.
• Recognize the potential risks associated with drug interaction commonly used in cancer treatment. 
 
Imaging in Non-traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to
• Identify the common causes and imaging manifestations of non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage.
• List the advantages and disadvantages of CT and MRI in non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage.
• Explain the advantages and disadvantages of CTA and MRA in non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage. 
 
New Endovascular Approaches to Unruptured Aneurysms
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to
• Explain how the evolution of imaging techniques and their increased use in clinical practice have led to a higher detection rate of unruptured intracranial aneurysms.

• List the current cardiac indications and major adverse events associated with hypothermia.
• Recognize the neuro indications for temperature modulations in the neuro ICU.
 
Medical Management After Stroke Intervention
Learning Objective
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to
• Implement prompt and effective evaluation and assessment of patients with stroke in order to reduce long-term effects associated with stroke.
 
Medical Management of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be better able to
• Explain step-by-step algorithms for ICP crisis.
• Define neurogenic stunned myocardium.
• Recognize state medical strategies for poor-grade SAH management.
