Brain hemorrhage is serious business. It is a medical emergency, and damage to the brain can be difficult to prevent.
For this reason, neurosurgeons like Dr. E. Sander Connolly from the Cerebrovascular Lab, continue their dogged search for the best new treatments. In so doing, Dr. Connolly has become one of the worlds foremost experts on the subject.
Dr. Connolly was one of the faculty for a class called “Innovations in the Management of Intracerebral and Intraventricular Hemorrhage.”
The word “Intracerebral” means that the hemorrhage, or bleeding, happens inside the brain (cerebrum). The word “Intraventricular” means that the bleeding is, more specifically, located inside chambers, called ventricles, deep in the brain.
Dr. Connolly and the other faculty taught their course attendees about traditional surgical approaches and about new, minimally invasive approaches. They discussed which options are best in which cases, and what difficulties must be overcome with each type of treatment.
A number of neurosurgeons from Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital also presented on a variety of subjects at the CNS annual meeting (see the full list here).
