Medical and Surgical Interventions in ICH: A Practical Workshop

Chicago - 7:00 AM - 2:30 PM

With 40% mortality at one month and only 25% of patients functionally independent at six months, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a devastating disease in dire need of an effective treatment. To date, clinical trials investigating a wide range of therapeutic options including open surgery, aggressive blood pressure control, and hemostatic agents have not demonstrated a benefit for this patient population, resulting in a dearth of options and at times nihilism in care for these patients both locally and across the USA.

This multidisciplinary symposium brings together national and regional experts to review current evidence and help educate practitioners on the latest interventions for ICH. Learners will have greater strategies for managing ICP, seizures and anticoagulation in ICH, along with hands-on training in endoscopic ICH evacuation. The course features two tracks: medical and surgical. The curriculum has been developed with expert faculty in the field to include didactic sessions, hands-on workshop-stations with 3D-printed heads and endoscope ICH evacuation and a multidisciplinary case review in which all attendees bring cases to present institutional ICH management strategies.
