Physicians treating patients with carotid artery disease face complex treatment decisions. The status of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) as the “gold standard of treatment” is being challenged by recent randomized clinical trials comparing CEA with less-invasive carotid artery stenting (CAS). This symposium will advance attendees’ understanding of the risks, benefits and current indications related to medical management, endovascular repair and open surgical repair.
By attending this symposium, participants will be better able to:
1. Define the role of pre-procedure carotid imaging in clinical practice.
2. Understand the medical options for treating patients with carotid disease.
3. Categorize high- and low-risk status in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) or carotid artery stenting (CAS).
4. Implement strategies for performing CAS in pts with unfavorable anatomy.
5. Utilize data on stent type when performing CAS.
VIVA conference attendees, including physicians and fellows-in-training who specialize in interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, vascular medicine, vascular surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, and neuroradiology. Also allied health professionals (including nurses, vascular clinic staff, endovascular operating room staff, cath lab and angio suite staff, nurse practitioners, vascular technologists and physician assistants) interested in the management of patients with vascular disease.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the University of Minnesota and Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation. The University of Minnesota is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
