Topic: Liquid Embolic Agents in fistulous lesions: when and why I choose what
Speaker: Patrick Brouwer, MD
Watch the recording of the ESMINT Webinar 11 (for ESMINT members only)
This webinar was about the various liquid embolic agents that we can use in the treatment of fistulous lesions in general, but more specific of AVM's. Since the choices are highly personal, I tried to give an overview of the agents (nBCA/histoacryl, Glubran, Onyx, Squid and Phil) and gave a case based illustration of when I choose which. The most important message you got from this webinar is that the choice for any material, or device for that matter, is not only dependent on the properties of the material but more so on the experience of the operator and her/his position in the learning curve with the material.

Topic: Microsurgery of AVM and the surgeon’s perspective on preoperative embolization
Speaker: Prof. Karl Schaller, Switzerland
Watch the recording of the ESMINT Webinar 10 by Prof. Karl Schaller (for ESMINT members only)
More information about the topic of the webinar:
The educational content will include a short review of the epidemiology and of the evaluation of the surgical risk of cerebral AVM. Furthermore, results from recent microsurgical series will be highlighted in the light of other treatment modalities and observation. From the perspective of a surgeon, who happens to be a strong believer in joint management of this pathology, particular focus will be attributed to profound analysis of angio-architectural AVM features and to patient selection for presurgical embolization. Recent tools and developments on the surgical side will be outlined as well.
More information about Prof. Karl Schaller:
Karl Schaller is Professor and chairman of the department of neurosurgery at the Geneva University Medical Center and Faculty of Medicine since 2007. He received his pregraduate training at the University of Tübingen, Germany, and pursued his post-graduate career in academic neurosurgery in Duisburg and in Bonn, Germany. His main surgical and research interests concern neurovascular surgery, the treatment of epilepsy, and surgery of brain tumors. He receives funding for the development of intra-operative monitoring and imaging technology, and for clinical neurovascular research. Currently, he is serving on the editorial or advisory board of several neurosurgical and neurological journals, e.g. Acta Neurochirurgica, Neurochirurgie, Neurosurgical Review, Neurosurgery, World Neurosurgery, and others. Until recently he chaired the Training committee of the EANS, and currently he is president-elect of the EANS and president of the Swiss Federation of Clinical Neuro-Societies.
