Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to the 11th NEUROSURGICAL MICROVASCULAR WORKSHOP in České Budějovice, Which will be held on May 22-24, 2019.

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 techniques are very important for the development of neurosurgical skills in aneurysm surgery for example. Experiments in microvascular anastomosis represent an ideal opportunity for such training. In the light of recent acute ischaemic stroke treatment and early prevention, the clinical indications of EC-IC bypass are being reconsidered. 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 low-flow 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 Professors Tomohiro Inou e, Director of the Department of Neurosurgery, NTT Hospital, Tokyo, Japan, Chairmen of the Department of Neurosurgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, USA.

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

Vladimir Přibáň

Clarion Congress Hotel České Budějovice is a newly renovated modern four-star hotel in České Budějovice. The hotel was already open in 1982 and was operated under the name Hotel Gomel until February 2011. Renovation took 14 months, transforming the original building into a four-star hotel bristling with new technology. Together with the increase in the standard of services, the hotel was incorporated into the Choice Hotels International group and has been in operation since April 2012 under the new name - Clarion Congress Hotel České Budějovice.
