AANS 2013: Another Busy Event for Cerebrovascular Section Officer Dr. Sean Lavine
So many of our neurosurgeons spoke at the 81st Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) held in New Orleans recently, not the least of which was Dr. Sean Lavine from the Cerebrovascular Center and Endovascular Center.
Dr. Lavine is Secretary of the AANS/CNS Joint Cerebrovascular Section and as such, he is busy throughout the year teaching and promoting clinical practice and research in this highly specialized area of neurosurgery.
He continued this effort at the recent AANS meeting, where he was able to speak with colleagues from around the globe in both informal and formal settings. Among these was a seminar on Advances in Treating Carotid Artery Disease: Surgery and Endovascular Therapy for which Dr. Lavine was a panelist.
In this course, he and others spoke specifically about two highly specialized procedures, carotid endarterectomy and carotid angioplasty with stenting for symptomatic and asymptomatic patients.Posted on May 31, 2013 by Department Author
