CAS Neuroanesthesia virtual national rounds

The CAS Neuroanesthesia Section would like to promote education in neuroscience and neuroanesthesia at the national level. Our section, in collaboration with the neuroanesthesia fellowship program directors across the country, plans to host regular rounds on a variety of topics in neuroanesthesia. We believe that this educational initiative would allow sharing of experiences across the country and build a more collegial neuroanesthesia society in Canada.

Speaker: Venkatraghavan, Lashmi, University of Toronto
Known knowns and Unknown knowns in neuroscience 
Learning objectives:
1. To review important known anatomical and physiological concepts relevance to neuroanesthesia.
2. To discuss the concepts that was unknowns and now become knowns.

Speaker: Sujoy Banik, University of Western Ontario
Problem-based learning: Inverse Expectation : anesthetic management of single-stage carotid endarterectomy and pipeline flow diverter insertion for intracranial aneurysm.
The discussion will cover:
1. To stent or not to stent? Is stenting better than carotid endarterectomy in a concomitant procedure?
2. What comes first, the ischemia or the rupture? Should the carotid endarterectomy be done before the flow diversion, or vice versa?
3. What are the anesthetic challenges and appropriate monitoring for this patient?
