About Course

El ictus es una emergencia médica tiempo dependiente. En el ictus isquémico agudo, el primer objetivo es conseguir restablecer el flujo cerebral mediante tratamiento trombolítico con rTPA endovenoso o, en caso de oclusión de gran vaso cerebral, mediante tratamiento endovascular. En el ictus hemorrágico existen también tratamientos específicos que pueden mejorar su pronóstico. El beneficio de todas las terapias disponibles en el ictus agudo es mayor cuanto antes se inicie el tratamiento, siendo esencial la organización de sistemas de Código Ictus coordinados entre los sistemas de emergencias médicas y los centros hospitalarios para conseguir una rápida atención y el inicio precoz del tratamiento. Las escalas de valoración neurológica facilitan el reconocimiento del ictus tanto a nivel hospitalario como prehospitalario y ofrecen una información muy valiosa sobre la gravedad del ictus. La escala RACE es una escala prehospitalaria validada como herramienta para identificar los pacientes con sospecha de oclusión arterial de gran vaso candidatos a tratamiento endovascular. Este curso pretende actualizar los conocimientos generales en el ictus agudo y los tratamientos disponibles actualmente, revisar los beneficios y el protocolo del Código Ictus y, finalmente, entrenar en el uso de la escala RACE. El perfil diana de este curso va dirigido a todos los Profesionales Sanitarios que trabajan en el ámbito de las urgencias y emergencias y atención primaria.

Endovascular coiling Endovascular coiling, or endovascular embolization, is an endovascular treatment for intracranial aneurysms and bleeding throughout the body. The procedure reduces blood circulation to the aneurysm through the use of microsurgical detachable platinum wires, with the clinician inserting one or more into the aneurysm until it is determined that blood flow is longer occurring within the space. This It is one of two main treatments for cerebral aneurysms, the other being surgical clipping. It is an alternative to stenting for bleeding.

Endovascular coiling As a means of avoiding invasive methods, early endovascular interventions involved the usage of detachable and nondetachable balloon catheters to occlude the aneurysm while preserving the parent artery. Despite the innovative approach, the aneurysms were often found to adapt to the shape of the balloon itself resulting in higher incidents of aneurysm rupture. This procedure was deemed "uncontrollable" due to its high morbidity and mortality rate, but it demonstrated that the endovascular approach was feasible for many aneurysms. Endovascular coils would later be used in 1989 by Hilal et al., but these were short, stiff coils that offered no control, preventing dense packing of the aneurysm. Controllable microguidewire systems were later used.
Endovascular aneurysm repair Endovascular aneurysm repair (or endovascular aortic repair) (EVAR) is a type of endovascular surgery used to treat pathology of the aorta, most commonly an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). When used to treat thoracic aortic disease, the procedure is then specifically termed TEVAR (thoracic endovascular aortic/aneurysm repair). The procedure involves the placement of an expandable stent graft within the aorta to treat aortic disease without operating directly on the aorta. In 2003, EVAR surpassed open aortic surgery as the most common technique for repair of AAA, and in 2010, EVAR accounted for 78% of all intact AAA repair in the United States.

Endovascular aneurysm repair The modern endovascular device used to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms, which is bifurcated and modular, was pioneered and first employed by Dr. Timothy Chuter while a fellow at the University of Rochester. The first clinical series of his device was published from Nottingham in 1994. The first endovascular repair of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm was also reported from Nottingham in 1994.

Nodens Ictus Nodens Ictus resurfaced in 2000 with the release of "Spacelines", a collection of old and new studio tracks along with a handful of live cuts dating back as far as 1988. Released on the Ozrics' own Stretchy Records label, the album generated reasonable interest, and Nodens Ictus soon returned to the live arena, again as an occasional support act at Ozric gigs, most notably at their "Pongmaster's Ball" extravaganzas held in London in 2002, 2004 and 2006. An appearance at the Glastonbury Festival was made in 2003, and Nodens Ictus continued with a pair of small-scale headline shows in Exeter and London in 2005.

Escala en la ciudad Escala en la ciudad ("A stop in the ciy") is a Argentine film directed and written by Alberto De Zavalia with Carlos Aden. It was produced by SIFAL, a production company run by de Zavalia and his partner Luis Saslavsky. The production company disbanded the following year, after de Zavalia had made "Escala en la ciudad", his feature film debut, and Saslavsky had completed his second and most famous movie, "Crimen a las tres".
Endovascular coiling Endovascular coiling is usually performed by an interventional neuroradiologist with the patient under general anaesthesia. The whole procedure is performed under fluoroscopic imaging guidance. A guiding catheter is inserted through the femoral artery and advanced to a site close to the aneurysm after which angiography is performed to localize and assess the aneurysm. After this, a microcatheter is navigated into the aneurysm.

Endovascular coiling Endovascular coiling was a developed through the synthesis of a number of innovations that took place between 1970 and 1990 in the field of electronics, neurosurgery, and interventional radiology. While the procedure itself has been and continues to be compared to surgical clipping, the development of the concept and procedure has resulted in it becoming the gold standard at many centers.
