Rational

The event will include seminars/lectures on the major forms of Cerebrovascular Malformations, with a particular focus on Cerebral Cavernous Malformations (also known as Cavernous Angioma or Cavernoma).

These are important biomedical issues for updating medical training, and of great interest in clinical and basic research. Indeed, while cerebrovascular diseases are the third cause of death and the second most common cause of neurological disability in western countries, natural history, pathogenic mechanisms and risk factors are largely unknown; moreover, therapeutic strategies are often limited to surgical intervention, although this is not always possible or resolutive.

The course aims at addressing these issues through a multidisciplinary and integrated approach, progressively analyzing the disease natural history and genetic and physiopathological bases, new clinical, instrumental and laboratory diagnostic approaches, potential risk factors, and current and future surgical and pharmacological strategies.

Indeed, the multidisciplinary approach is a strategy to provide a comprehensive overview, allowing specialists working in complementary clinical and research fields to better define and pursue the most effective and efficient clinical management procedures.
