Dear Friends and colleagues,
Prof. Philippe Mercier and I invite you to the 3rd Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium which will be held on Saturday, September 21st at the Mediplex Sejong Hospital, Incheon, Korea.
We received enthusiastic responses from the attendees of the last year’s symposium. Prof. Mercier showed details of vascular anatomy in 3D, beautifully prepared by injecting in the cerebral arteries and veins of cadavers and carefully dissected them according to the specific territories. Many were impressed of presented materials and praised the program which correlates angioanatomy and surgical anatomy.
Since we could not cover all vascular territories in one afternoon sessions, I decided to expand the program to a whole day this year.
Same as the last year’s program, Prof. Mercier and I will alternate to illustrate important aspects of embryology of the neurovascular system and correlation between angioanatomy and actual surgical anatomy.
In an era of advanced technology to treat various vascular diseases of central nervous system, we, neurointerventionalists, young and old, tend to ignore fundermentals of our specialty, anatomy and understanding of each disease itself, including pathology and pathophysiology. To treat an individual patient effectively and safely, we all should build strong basic knowledges; Anatomy, Biology and Clinical correlation (ABC which Prof. Pierre Lasjaunias named his teaching course)
I am inviting you to the 3rd Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium of Sejong Hospital to expand our vision of how to interpret angiograms of each case, how to correlate with presentations and how to treat individual patient more effectively.
