Target audience

The Global Neuro Neurotrauma Course has been developed for residents, surgeons, and physicians who manage cranial neurotrauma. 

Languages
English

This 1.5-day Global Neuro event will covers the current best strategies and considerations for multimodality monitoring techniques (including intracranial pressure, cerebral perfusion pressure, autoregulation, brain oxygenation and microdialysis), neurosurgical and general management of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and relevant anatomy. 

The content is delivered using comprehensive lectures, interactive case presentations, and cadaver lab practical sessions. Sessions will include drill work, cranioplasty techniques, bolt, and monitor insertion and offer further opportunities for participants to have hands-on experience with neurosurgical techniques for neurotrauma.

 

The Global Neuro Neurotrauma course covers the theoretical basis and practical principles that are the foundation for managing cranial neurotrauma. 

By completing the neurotrauma workshop, participants will be better able to: 

  • Perform ICP monitoring and interpretation to guide treatment interventions
  • Incorporate the principles of cerebral autoregulation into management goals
  • Manage cranial neurotrauma in adult, pediatric, and polytrauma patients
  • Conduct advanced neuromonitoring
  • Plan and perform appropriate operative treatment (eg decompressive craniotomy, cranial reconstruction)
  • Plan and perform the following operative techniques: burr hole, ICP monitor and EVD placement, decompressive craniotomy, dural enlargement, cranioplasty and ventriculostomy procedures
  • Manage common complications, such as bleeding, expanding intracranial hematomas, swelling, infection, and hydrocephalus
  • Become familiar with international neurotrauma management guidelines
