Choosing the Target for Parkinson's Disease

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure used to treat several disabling neurological symptoms - most commonly the debilitating motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (e.g. tremor, rigidity, stiffness, slowed movement, and walking problems). The procedure is also used to treat essential tremor and dystonia among other pathologies.

Choosing the best anatomical target for the electrodes is of as much importance as selecting the right patients for the procedure. Dr. Peter Nora shares his experience in the field, and gives advice for successful results. 

 

 

Dates: January 17 – 19, 2018
Location: Strasbourg, France

This workshop is intended for neurosurgeons from the world over, to learn and practice the technical skills required for skull base surgery. It has been structured to provide both didactic lectures and intensive hands-on cadaver dissection sessions, covering a broad spectrum of transcranial and endoscopic approaches. A panel of distinguished leaders in these fields will deliver lectures focusing on skull base anatomy, surgical approaches and therapeutic strategies for skull base lesions. The scientific program will include a guest speaker session on a topic related to skull base neurosurgery, with lectures given by world-renowned experts. Attendees will benefit from the outstanding surgical lab environment of the IRCAD with state-of-the-art equipment provided by sponsors. For hands-on sessions, a demonstration will be performed at the master station, transmitted onto a screen at each workstation. In the meantime, participants will work as a team of two on prepared injected fixed specimens under the guidance of a distinguished expert faculty.

A key consideration to successful complex skull base surgery is the anatomy. Tailoring the approach towards every single lesion defines the flow of the surgery. The ability to operate successfully within cavernous sinus and around the orbit largely depends on an improved understanding of the anatomy and pathology in the parasellar region. Dr. Johnny Delashaw explains in detail every single structure on the way to the lesion and how to deal with it without harming nearby vessels and nerves.

Krakow, Poland

 

CCN is designed to review neurosurgery in the most dynamic and interactive manner, based on case management led by world experts. The course will offer up to date review of both clinical and basic science in a non didactic style. Started in 2013, this is the fifth CCN Review course with a huge success in the past four years.
This course is mainly designed for established neurosurgeons and senior trainees. Seasoned neurosurgeons and junior trainees will find this course as an excellent refresher and a practical review of neurosurgery.
The course aims to help participants focus on examination-relevant topics, while deepening their understanding of materials through lectures, discussions and critique. It will provide an excellent preparation for challenging oral board exams such as the Royal College (British,Canadian), EANS and the American board exams or oral boards in your respective countries.

Making Sense of AVM Surgery

Dealing with arteriovenous malformation (AVMs), although these are vascular lesions like aneurysms, is way different and far more difficult than clipping an aneurysm. Having the right strategy is crucial for the successful end. Dr. Michael Lawton reveals tenets and techniques gained during his long experience in vascular neurosurgery. Understanding the organization of each AVM depending on its location in brain is of utmost importance. That is why Dr. Lawton categorized AVMs to seven types and explain approaches to each one of them.

4th AIIMS Annual Neurotrauma Conference

Location: New Dehli, India

Neurotrauma (head and spinal injuries) remains a forefront contributor to high mortality and morbidity globally. Department of Neurosurgery at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi has taken the initiative to hold an update conference on recent advances in neurotrauma care annually for the last five years.

Groups of experts from all over the world will come together to share their experience in managing neurotrauma cases, discuss research and recent updates. The theme of this year is “Bridging Gap between Basic and Advanced Neurotrauma Care”.

This year, the event is more unique as it will be preceded by First AONeuro Seminar-Neurotrauma symposium (26th-27th October 2017) at AIIMS, New Delhi. This symposium will discuss at length updates on TBI in extremes of age. Faculty for this event range from WFNS president, TRACK TBI leaders and neurotrauma experts from the top centres of USA, Australia, Korea, Italy and many other countries. This course covers the current best strategies and considerations for managing neurotrauma patients. It features an international faculty of experts and is based on the competencies defined in AONeuro’s new neurotrauma curriculum. The course content is delivered using multiple educational methods. Comprehensive lectures concentrate on the understanding of core material. Interactive case presentations will further deepen this knowledge and facilitate the discussion in trauma management. Newly developed practical exercises enable participants to apply AO principles in the management of common injuries. Case-based discussions link the lecture material and practical skills with the clinical problems commonly encountered in everyday practice.

WFNS XVI World Congress of Neurosurgery

The World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies (WFNS) is a professional, scientific, non-governmental organization comprising  5 Continental Associations, 115 National Neurosurgical Societies, and represents some 30,000 neurosurgeons worldwide.

The World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies aspires to promote global improvement in neurosurgical care. The mission of the WFNS is to work together with member societies to improve worldwide neurosurgical care, training and research to benefit the patients.

The goals of the WFNS are deliberated and pursued through scientific, standing and ad-hoc committees and during the International Congress of Neurosurgery which takes place every four years.

The WFNS works to increase visibility and credibility of its activities among neurosurgeons, researchers, other health professionals, international professional organizations and the general public. This is accomplished through publications, surveys, campaigns, a website and cooperation with other medical and lay organization.

Resembling Istanbul’s harmonic blend of cultures, this year’s hosts aim to make “WFNS XVI. World Congress of Neurosurgery” a great opportunity to gather neurosurgeons from all around the world.

Previous Pannonian CNS Injury Symposia sought to provide a unique environment for evaluation of translational research in traumatic brain injury.

Contemporary thought now appreciates that communication between basic scientists and clinicians is essential to improve the relevance and impact of advances as well as the quality of patient care and management - a major goal that the Pannonian symposia has embraced for more than 15 years.

There will be presentations from worldwide experts on brain injury research with a focus on pathobiology and applied clinical research. The application of this to patient care will also be discussed, ultimately leading to better treatments for our brain-injured population.
