About workshop

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to the 11th NEUROSURGICAL MICROVASCULAR WORKSHOP in Hospital České Budějovice, which will be held on Wednesday 2nd – Friday 4th DEC 2020.

First allow us to thank the expert guarantor: Prof. Martin Smrčka, President of Czech Neurosurgical Society for his support of workshop, that has become a tradition. No less important for the existence of the meeting is the technical background provided by the Institute of Parasitology, the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. We would like to use this opportunity and thank director Prof. J. Lukeš for his assistance, which is vital for the organization of the workshop.

Microsurgical training in lab is important part for the development of neurosurgical skills for bypass surgery. This should be essential part of training in cerebrovascular neurosurgery. Experiment in rat´s microvascular anastomosis represents an ideal opportunity for such training. In the light of recent acute ischaemic stroke management, Carotid endarterectomy indication is moving from asymptomatic to hot patients. Modern comprehensive stroke center needs experienced neurosurgeon, who can perform EC-IC bypass as well . A limited number of the procedures may be performed in selected subgroups of ischemic stroke patients regardless of the results of COSS study. A neurosurgeon should be technically equipped for this situation.

The purpose of our workshop is to provide training for those trainees or specialists who want to improve their microsurgical technical skills.

The Live Surgery will take place within the workshop. EC-IC flow augmentation bypass and/or Carotid Micro endarterectomies will be performed. It is a tradition to spend this time with experts from abroad. Famous neurosurgeons participated in past workshops. Professors Hernesniemi, Tulleken, Šteňo and Beneš among others. This year it is great pleasure for us to invite prof. Fady T. Charbel, Head of Department of Neurosurgery at UIC Chicago, USA, prof. Tomohiro Inoue, Director of the Department of Neurosurgery, NTT Hospital, Tokyo, Japan and prof. Pavel Chechulov, Head of Department of Neurosurgery St. Petersburg Research Institute of Emergency Medicine, Russia.

Due to the limited capacity of the facilities, the organizers unfortunately had to limit the number of participants and therefore kindly ask for applications to be sent to the address of the organizing committee. We are looking forward to seeing you in České Budějovice.

Yours sincerely

Jiri Fiedler
