infos: The 16th Zurich Course on Interventional Neuroradiology has been prepared along the established educational lines and the traditional spirit of the Zurich, Toronto and Paris-Bicêtre schools of neuroradiology. Throughout the past fifteen years the teaching faculty has been intentionally kept small, with teachers sharing similar philosophy, clinical experience and long lasting collaboration. The teaching faculty includes Professors Pierre Lasjaunias, Marco Leonardi, Karel terBrugge and Anton Valavanis. The approved educational methods of introductory and explanatory lectures, interactive video workshops for demonstration of technical details and open faculty conversations as well as the style of interactive discussion with the participants will be again used in the 16th Course. This time the Course will focus on the treatment of dural intracranial arteriovenous shunts, hypervascular neoplasms of the intracranial space, the skull base and the head and neck, brain AVM's and AV-fistulae, intracranial aneurysms, aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, preventive stroke treatment and emergency endoarterial stroke treatment. For each topic clinical manifestations, underlying neuroanatomic facts and neurobiological considerations are used to elaborate treatment strategies, understand approach selection and demonstrate in detail the application of endovascular techniques and their results. Professor Ugo Fisch, pioneer of skull base microsurgery, Professor Helmut Bertalanffy, prominent microneurosurgeon and Professor Ralf Baumgartner, dedicated stroke neurologist, are the special guest faculty and will contribute with their experience and expertise to the respective topics. Contents and structure of the Course have been conceived in such a manner, that it can be attended by beginners in the field and by experienced practitioners of endovascular interventional neuroradiology as well as by technicians, nurses and interested physicians of related disciplines.
