Impressions from the 2nd Congress of the European Acadamy of Neurology (EAN)


The 2nd Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) took place in Copenhagen Bella Center from May 28 - 31, 2016.

Our Society was successfully involved in this Congress. Natan Bornstein and Laszlo Csiba were the chairpersons of the hands-on course about “Neurosonology” and have been supported by Stephan Schreiber and Edoardo Vicenzini. The lectures about different aspects of methods, evaluation and assessment of neurosonology where followed by hands-on demonstrations. Approximately 60 participants joint this important course.

David Russell was chairing an important workshop about “Frontier applications in Neurosonology” were the advantages of neurosonology as an efficient tool of therapy in the cerebrovascular and other neurological diseases were discussed.

Natan Bornstein was the chairperson of the teaching course about “Life after stroke” that focused on specific issues in the female patients like pregnancy and future administration of oral contraceptives and also hormone replacement. Also the often underestimated cognitive and higher cortical disorders, their assessment, screening and treatment was taken into account.

The newly established ESNCH booth was well frequented and throughout the Congress we were able to distribute more than 800 flyers.

The 3rd Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) took place in Amsterdam, June 24 - 27, 2017

Report on: ADVANCED TEACHING COURSE LEVEL 3 – Neurosonology

On June 24th 2017, first day of the EAN congress in Amsterdam, took place an Advanced Level 3 Teaching Course in Neurosonology. It was organized - on behalf of the ESNCH - by Prof. Fabienne Perren (Switzerland) who invited the following speakers: Prof. Georgios Tsivgoulis (Greece) lectured on the utility of TCD for real-time monitoring of intravenous and endovascular reperfusion therapies in patients with acute cerebral ischemia due to proximal intracranial occlusions. Prof. José Valdueza (Germany) presented different insonation planes facilitating the anatomical orientation and the detection and analysis of more distal segments of intracranial vessels (M3, A3, P3, C6) as well as cortical branches with TCCS and demonstrated the neighbourhood of arteries to certain veins, Prof. Leo Visser (The Netherlands) introduced clinicians to understand the role of nerve ultrasound imaging for the (differential) diagnosis of polyneuropathies and showed how ultrasound can help to determine whether a polyneuropathy is demyelinating or axonal. Prof. Fabienne Perren, herself, concentrated on the ultrasound technical breakthrough of the examination of the atherosclerotic plaque and on the multiple criteria of grading carotid artery stenosis. The course was fully booked out and a success according to the very high rating of the participants.
 
 
 
 

Impressions from the 5th International Training Course of the ESNCH and the 9th Zadar Summer School of Neurosonology and Stroke Management

28th-30th September 2017, Zadar, Croatia

The 5th International Training Course of the ESNCH was held together with the 9th edition of Zadar Summer School of Neurosonology and Stroke Management. In the inspiring atmosphere of early Autumn at Croatian seaside, 58 participants and 17 lecturers arriving from 12 different countries worked hard during three days of lecturers, hands-on and case report sessions. The Program concept covered topics from ultrasound application in different phases of cerebrovascular diseases to the advanced vascular applications. Non-vascular ultrasound and the intensive care ultrasound hands-on sessions attracted a lot of attention. Vascular applications of extracranial and transcranial ultrasound as well as ultrasound guided application of botulinum toxin were performed in real patients, and even chicken breasts were used as a teaching tool to demonstrate the ICU ultrasound methods.
Dr. Erion Dushi was successful in obtaining the International Certification in Neurosonology.
In the evenings, social events in the charming city of Zadar took part. They were another opportunity for younger participants to better know their lecturers and establish connections for their future work.
The event was endorsed by the European Stroke Organisation, Ministry of Health of the Republic of Croatia, University Hospital Centre Zagreb and General Hospital Zadar.
