SUSS invites you to the first Journal Club of 2019, where this month we’re focusing on neurosurgery!
Kimberley Dean will give us an overview of a common complication of neurosurgery – Central Diabetes Insipidus, including the role of neuroimaging, and the implications of neurosurgery on the prevalence of CDI.
Chantal Arce will be discussing the use of spinal cord stimulation in treating constant pain in patients who have exhausted other therapeutic modalities. Although the procedure is commonly performed there is some debate as to how the stimulators are placed. This study focused on patient alertness during the procedure to compare if patients that were awake had better outcomes than those that were under general anaesthesia. To be awake, or to not be awake? That is the question!
Join us at the RPA Institute for Academic Surgery on Wednesday 13th March at 6pm.
