Neuro 9: Cerebrovascular Accidents
Neuro 9 Course Description:
This 50-minute course aimed at veterinarians and veterinary technicians explores the different types of “strokes”, or cerebral vascular accidents (CVAs) in brains of common veterinary species. We will review the vascular anatomy of the brain and explore the effects of CVAs on neural tissue. Additionally, we will discuss how different diseases can result in CVAs along with the relevant diagnostics. We will also review the most recent evidence-based recommendations on treatment and associated prognoses, with a focus on pre-referral and first line therapy.
