An important event of this month has become a 2-day educational course Treatment of Rare Cerebrovascular Diseases that was designed by RENS together with Federal Center for Brain Research and Neurotechnologies, N.N. Burdenko National Research Center for Neurosurgery, I.I. Janelidze St. Petersburg Research Institute of Emergency Medicine, Kirov Military Medical Academy. and Interregional Clinical and Diagnostic Center in Kazan.
As part of the course, the following endovascular neurosurgeons delivered their lectures:
— Kirill Orlov, Director of RENS and Head of Research Center for Endovascular Neurosurgery at Federal Center for Brain Research and Neurotechnologies;
— Alexander Savello, Head of the 3rd Neurosurgical Department at Polenov Neurosurgical Institute and Deputy Head of Department of Neurosurgery at Kirov Military Medical Academy;
— Inna Shchederkina, Head of Center for Treatment of Cerebrovascular Pathologies in Children and Adolescents (Center for Pediatric Stroke) established by the Children’s Health Department at the Morozov Children’s Clinical Hospital;
— Sergey Yakovlev, Head of the 4th Neurosurgical Department at N.N. Burdenko National Research Center for Neurosurgery;
— Roman Garbuzo, Leading Researcher of Department of Pediatric Surgery and Physician N.I. PirogovRussian Children’s Hospital,
— Jens Fichler, Head of Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf,
— Mynzhylky Berdikhodzhaev, Deputy Director for Surgery at Medical Center of the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Kazakhstan,
— Konstantin Babichev, Neurosurgeon of Kirov Military Medical Academy.
In his report, Kirill Orlov touched upon the topics of transvenous and transarterial treatment of dural fistulas, treatment of sinus stenosis and treatment of AVMs in children. He also stated, “In fact, cerebrovascular pathologies are not so rare, they are just less common than the most common pathologies such as strokes, aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. The course concerns the treatment of dural fistulas, tumors, a new direction in the treatment of subdural hematomas, and this course is very important, from our point of view, for both young doctors and experienced ones who share new information with each other!”
Considering the current situation in the world, the course also addressed the possible consequences of craniocerebral injuries and mine-blast injuries, since the aneurysms and arteriovenous fistulas formed as a consequence require a special approach to treatment and diagnosis.
The solemn moment of the course was presenting a Distinctive badge for Development of Endovascular Neurosurgery and a Diploma to one of the pioneers in the field, Doctor of Medical Sciences Theodor Thyssen. We congratulate Dr. Thyssen on that honor and wish him good health!
As for the participants the course, we thank them for sharing their unique experience, wish them best in their work and invite them to take part in the next RENS events!
