MVSIC presents Stroke Prevention Course

San Donato Milanese, 06 - 07 Marzo 2019


Stroke is the leading cause of disability and the third cause of mortality in the Western world. A patient affected by a disabling stroke has a huge impact in terms of assistance costs and efforts on his family, his caregivers and to the society. This is why stroke is the most dreadful complication of endovascular procedures and it needs to be prevented by all means.
There are strategies and adjunctive devices to reduce the incidence of stroke as a complication of cardiac procedures and there are different interventions aiming at a reduction of future strokes for Cardiology patients.
These are the topics of MVSIC Stroke Prevention, a 2-day course for Cardiologists and Endovascular Specialists (Cardiac Surgeons, Vascular Surgeons, Interventional Cardiologists) aiming at reducing stroke as a complication of interventional procedures and exploring the techniques for preventing stroke of some cardiac and vascular conditions. Participants will observe and interact with operators during live cases of carotid artery stenting, PFO and LAA closure, TAVR cases with different embolic protection strategies. Small group training and hands on sessions will be performed with all the practical and technical information presented in an interactive and learning-friendly environment.
