Held just days apart, the two conferences were: the 3rd SNIS International Endovascular Stroke Conference and Joint Cerebrovascular Section Annual Meeting; and the International Stroke Conference put on by the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association.
At the first meeting, Dr. Lavine moderated a session titled, What the Case I Will Never Forget Taught Me, in which cases were presented from across all areas of neurosurgery and included subjects such as: bypass surgery, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, cavernomas, and dural fistulas.
“Each presenter spoke about a single case that he/she had a significant learning experience with, whether good or bad,” says Dr. Lavine. “They talked about what was learned and how things can be done better in the future. We often learn much more from the cases that don’t go as initially planned. It can be very difficult to share your adversities, and I applaud the lecturers for their candid presentations.”
At the second meeting (the International Stroke Conference), Dr. Lavine took part in two oral abstract sessions; He was moderator at a session on Acute Endovascular Treatment and he hosted a seminar on vascular malformations.
