To Train candidates on the efficacy of extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass surgery using a radial artery interposition graft (RAIG) for surgical management of cerebrovascular diseases.
Taming the waves: Hands-on!
6 October 2023, 08:30 – 10:00
Objective: This is a hands-on session aiming to acquaint a limited number of participants with practical issues of performing neurovascular ultrasound. Several stands with high-end ultrasound instruments and experienced instructors will be available to initiate you to the pulsating magic of neurosonology. An experience not to miss!

Basic Module: The workshop illustrates the cerebral vessel anatomy and its challenges to perform mechanical thrombectomy in silicon/flow models. The participants work in small groups on models of the Circle of Willis together with experienced national and international interventionalists from the faculty. Basics of microwire and -catheter navigation, stent-retriever and aspiration catheter placement as well as thrombectomy are performed by the participants under guidance.
7 October 2023, 11:30 – 13:00
Advanced Module: Access to the cervical vessels, the use of different thrombectomy devices (stent-retriever, aspiration catheter) are being trained. The simulators offer a more complex training environment of the interventional lab. An additional focus is the use of adjunctive techniques such the placement as balloon guide catheters in the cervical vessels and the combination of aspiration and stent retriever in proximal and more distal vessels.

The use of CFD in neurointervention has made significant advances in the last decade. CFD simulations continue to demonstrate immense value in interventional planning, diagnosis, and as an insilico trials technology widely used in the medical device industry. This workshop brings the MENA-SINO community and congress audience to the cutting edge of this important area of current research and future clinical practice.
