This full-day multidisciplinary symposium on the topic of Intracranial Hypotension secondary to spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak brings together top clinicians and researchers to share the latest advances in the diagnostic evaluation and treatment of this under-diagnosed, disabling but treatable secondary headache disorder.

Clinicians, researchers, patients and caregivers are invited to attend.

The symposium offers a professional track and a patient/caregiver track and concludes with an interactive shared session. Invited speakers include representatives from a range of subspecialties, including anesthesiology, neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology and pain management.

The professional track will cover current aspects of clinical presentations, objective measurements, differential diagnoses, complications, diagnostic imaging, percutaneous interventions and surgical approaches.

The patient/caregiver track will provide an overview and update on the diagnosis and treatment of intracranial hypotension and rebound intracranial hypertension.

Patients will be empowered in improving outcomes and quality of life as well as understanding the patient role in clinical research.

An interactive shared session will discuss the challenges and approaches for patients with residual post-treatment headache. There is an urgent need to improve access to appropriate diagnostics and treatments to reduce the burden of suffering for intracranial hypotension patients.

This conference is designed to meet the needs of neurologists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, neuroradiologists, pain management physicians, and other clinicians who treat patients with this diagnosis as well as patients and caregivers interested in gaining more knowledge on this disorder.
