Radiology Grand Rounds in Conjunction with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute: Clinical Research Topics in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology

MIami, FL US
May 16, 2016

Fellows participating in the current MCVI Fellowship Program will present results of their research at the Institute. Topics include endovascular aneurysm repair in patients with hostile neck anatomy; endpoints of critical limb ischemia interventions; dual energy CT lung perfusion scanning combined with catheter directed therapy for submassive PE diagnosis; the penumbra peripheral aspiration thrombectomy system for treatment of massive and submassive pulmonary embolism; and temporary IVC filter placement during lower extremity venous thrombolysis.

Target Audience

Radiologists, Pulmonologists, Thoracic Surgeons, Imaging Services Administration, Baptist Health Executives, Hospitalists, Family Medicine Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Radiology Technologists, Respiratory Therapists, and all interested allied health professionals.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the parameters that attribute to a hostile neck anatomy for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR).
  • Determine  and explain potential outcomes in patients with hostile neck anatomy after EVAR
  • Describe alternate techniques – excluded from the ‘Intended for Use’ guidelines – that have facilitated EVAR in patients with hostile neck anatomy.
  • Highlight and discuss the current limitations in determining how much flow restoration is sufficient for clinical improvement in patients with critical limb ischemia.
  • Examine existing tools and newer modalities for determining interventional endpoints in patients with critical limb ischemia.
  • Discuss and analyze clinical diagnosis of submassive pulmonary embolism and the role of catheter directed therapy.
  • Explain utility of dual energy CT lung perfusion scanning in submassive pulmonary embolism.
  • Recognize current laboratory and imaging tests available for the assessment of pulmonary embolism.
  • Distinguish between massive and sub-massive pulmonary embolism using diagnostic criteria.
  • Evaluate short and long-term sequelae of pulmonary embolism and the importance of treatment.
  • Identify the medical and mechanical treatment options for PE, the role for each, and their respective contraindications.
  • Discuss the basics of lower extremity venous thrombolysis, including its indications, and current practices/recommendations for IVC filter placement during thrombolysis.
  • Assess proposed advantages, disadvantages, and criticisms of IVC filter placement during lower extremity venous thrombolysis.
  • Discuss and explain data regarding IVC filter placement during lower extremity venous thrombolysis (incidence of thrombus discovered within the IVC filter and percentage of IVC filters retrieved) and the potential implication on current practices/recommendations.
