WFNS Neurosurgical Anatomy Webinar (12th – 13th May 2020)

WFNS Neurosurgical Anatomy Webinar (12th – 13th May 2020)

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the World Federation of Neurological Surgeons “Neuroanatomy Committee” we are pleased to launch its “1st online, dynamic educational course” to promote sound clinical judgement, enhance the neurosurgical skills of young neurosurgeons and trainees around the globe, encourage them to rise to their challenges and respond to their enquiries.

The course will encompass special presentations by distinguished faculty, case discussions and short video sessions reflecting the importance and relevance of anatomical knowledge to neurosurgical interventions.

Sincerely,

Imad N. Kanaan & Vladimír Beneš

Aerobic Exercise May Treat Persistent Post-concussive Symptoms in Adults

A new study will evaluate whether persistent symptoms following concussion, also known as post-concussion syndrome, can be treated using a personalized, progressive aerobic exercise program.

Novel use of Robotics for Neuroendovascular Procedures
