Course Information


Care of cerebrovascular conditions continues to advance at a rapid pace. The Cleveland Clinic Innovations in Cerebrovascular Care 2018 meeting aims to focus on clinical care and technological advances in the field, as well as provide a multidisciplinary discussion around some of the greatest challenges practitioners from the neurosciences and other fields face in caring for these complex patients.

Who Should Attend?

This educational activity is intended for neurologists, neurosurgeons, critical care physicians, radiologists, emergency medicine physicians, primary care physicians, nurses, advanced practice providers and allied health professionals who treat cerebrovascular patients.

Learning Objectives

After completing this educational activity, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Critically appraise the safety and efficacy data on device innovations that are designed to treat cardiac defects as well as their effect on reducing stroke risks.
  • List the new aneurysm treatment devices and summarize the evidence supporting expanded surgical options for repairing aneurysms and treating acute hemodynamic failure.
  • Describe the techniques and innovations in endovascular surgery and their potential clinical implications for emergent large-vessel occlusion (ELVO) stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), and arteriovenous malformation (AVM) treatment.
  • Provide a critical review of clinical innovations in stroke care, including technology developments for mobile stroke units, and describe their use to improve stroke outcomes.
  • Describe advances in critical care for patients with stroke, including invasive and non-invasive monitoring, cerebral edema management, and telemedicine, and define their role in clinical care.
