Course Information


Care of cerebrovascular conditions continues to advance at a rapid pace. The Cleveland Clinic Innovations in Cerebrovascular Care 2024 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 emergency medicine physicians, fellows, neurointensivists, neurointerventionalists, neurologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, primary care physicians, and residents who treat cerebrovascular patients.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Critically review the evidence on the potential indications for anticoagulation in cerebral amyloid angiopathy and the risks and benefits of anticoagulation for each potential indication.
  • Describe the latest techniques in the treatment of hemorrhagic stroke and arteriovenous malformation, and candidate selection for each, including minimally invasive techniques, based on current knowledge.
  • Elucidate the clinical evidence to support the use of flow diversion for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms, and the efficacy and safety profile of this treatment, and for which patients this treatment option is feasible.
  • Discuss the management of complex cerebrovascular lesions, especially intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations.
  • Describe the evidence for administering IV thrombolysis outside the approved 4.5-hour time window in patients suffering acute ischemic stroke, the evidence for anticoagulation in the treatment of cervical artery dissection, and the use of GLP-1 receptor agonists to reduce the risk of stroke.
  • Express how the control of modifiable risk factors can prevent dementia and stroke in older individuals.
  • Recall the process of normothermic regional perfusion to preserve organ function to increase the pool of donors in heart transplantation.
