Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Neurology Volume 05, Issue 07: Aneurysm/Intracranial Hemmorhage
Cargill H. Alleyne Jr, MD, Director of Residency Program, Neurosurgery Vascular Service, and Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit, Georgia Regents University Health System, Augusta, GA, presented on Subarachnoid Hemorrhage and Intracranial Aneurysm. J. Claude Hemphill III, MD, MAS, Director, Neurocritical Care Program, San Francisco General Hospital, San Francisco, presented on Intracerebral Hemorrhage
The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of unruptured aneurysms, subarachnoid hemorrhages (SAHs), and intracerebral hemorrhages (ICHs). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Accurately diagnose SAH by lumbar puncture and imaging.
2. Choose between the use of endovascular coiling and surgical clipping to treat aneurysms.
3. Recognize the importance of hematoma volume in predicting outcomes and guiding treatment in patients with ICH.
4. Interpret results of studies evaluating reduction of blood pressure as a treatment to prevent expansion of hematoma after ICH.
5. Evaluate the safety and efficacy of surgical approaches to treatment of ICH.
The original programs were presented by Cargill H. Alleyne Jr, MD, Director of Residency Program, Neurosurgery Vascular Service, and Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit, Georgia Regents University Health System, Augusta, GA, and J. Claude Hemphill III, MD, MAS, Director, Neurocritical Care Program, San Francisco General Hospital, San Francisco.
