Current Management of Arteriovenous Malformations || Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus: Guidelines for Provocative Testing

The Miami Neuroscience Symposium Online will cover topics related to surgical management, stroke management, neurocritical care, neuro-imaging and neuro-oncology. The expert faculty will engage participants through complex cases and novel treatment strategies. Our goal is to share the most innovative and evidence-based clinical practices available in order to optimize patient outcomes in these areas of neuroscience.

Current Management of Arteriovenous Malformations

This lecture will address the incidence and natural history of arteriovenous malformations, along with examining the outcomes of surgical and nonsurgical options, and multimodality treatment options available for patients with arteriovenous malformations.

Learning Objectives:
  • Review the incidence and natural history of arteriovenous malformations.
  • Determine the outcomes of surgical resection of arteriovenous malformations compared to outcomes in nonsurgically treated patients.
  • Recognize multimodality treatment options available for patients with arteriovenous malformations.

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus: Guidelines for Provocative Testing

This lecture will address the differential diagnosis of patients who present with characteristic manifestations of normal pressure hydrocephalus and the importance of early-stage treatment once normal pressure hydrocephalus is confirmed.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the clinical symptoms of normal pressure hydrocephalus. 
  • Identify which tests may be utilized to confirm the diagnosis. 
  • Recognize which surgical treatment modalities may be offered for treatment. 

Target Audience

Adult and Pediatric Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Stroke Neurologists, Neuroradiologists, Diagnostic Radiologists, Critical Care Physicians, Neurointensivists, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Internal Medicine Physicians, Interventional Neuroradiologists, Family Physicians, General Internists, Physician Assistants, Critical Care and Neuroscience Nurses, Neurosurgery Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Respiratory Therapists (Personal Growth) and Rehabilitation and Pain Management Specialists, as well as other specialists interested in the field of neuroscience.
