General information

Welcome to the unique event in Romania – The Neurosurgical Masterclass!

Reaching its seventh edition, this year’s Neurosurgical Masterclass will mainly focus on the extensive and vital topic of „Vascular Neurosurgery”.

The cerebrovascular diseases and conditions that afflict people today are broadly similar to those in decades past, but our understanding of these conditions and our approaches to treating them have evolved more in the last 20 years than in any prior interval. Just as it did 20 years ago, neurovascular surgery still represents an apex subspecialty, a particularly treacherous field that demands complete commitment from those who would scale its rarefied heights (and frequent depths). For these reasons, especially deep study and preparation is needed by those early in their (neurovascular) careers to be able to achieve the levels of expertise attained by their mentors who gained experience in a different era.

The course will contain foundational information, covering development, anatomy, and physiology relevant to normal and abnormal cerebral vasculature. Residents and students in neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology, and neuroendovascular interventionists should master the neurovascular anatomy as a prerequisite to performing procedures.

The theoretical lectures delivered by our elite invited speakers will cover everything from ischemic stroke to aneurysms and vascular malformations such as arteriovenous malformations, fistulas and cavernomas. They will offer us their experience regarding the best approach to a vascular pathology, through an open surgery or endovascular one, showing us pro’s and con’s to each one.

In addition to the theoretical part, participants will be able to engage in one of our workshops: „Live Surgery” – performed by professor Ioan Ștefan Florian, „Introduction to Microsurgery” – under the guidance of doctor Victor Volovici and the Students’ Surgical Society from Romania, “Basic Surgical Skills” or “Neuroimaging Basics”.

Neurosurgical knowledge changes rapidly. In this digital age, much information is available online. You may read these words on an electronic device as on paper but it will never compare with the information and experience you can get by attending a course in which you have the possibility to interract with some of the most renowned masters in this field.
