Students are expect to acquire:
-Knowledge which will enable students to carry out tasks related to the semiology, pathology and clinical approach of the essential nosologic entities (most frequent and/or relevant) of the Vascular Disease.
-Endow students with important knowledge of cerebral and peripheral hemodynamics in normal and pathological conditions;
-Theoretical and practical knowledge which will enable them to understand and develop skills to participate in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of stroke and peripheral vascular pathology, and related diseases.
-Multidisciplinary notions and understanding of the need for a chain-based organization when approaching stroke.-Knowledge on the current state of investigation in the field of the cerebrovascular and peripheral vascular diseases and future perspectives.
-Cerebral hemodynamics in normal or pathological conditions. Identification of stroke in an emergency context. The need for chain coordination - Stroke Code Pathway. Parenchymal and vascular imaging techniques. Recent therapeutic approaches, arterial recanalization. Stroke units. Neuroplasticity and its importance in post-stroke rehabilitation. Current international guidelines. Investigation in cerebrovascular diseases and future perspectives.-Atherosclerotic obstructive peripheral artery disease: clinical and hemodynamic approach. Acute and chronic critical ischemia. Expansive atherosclerotic disease - abdominal aortic aneurysm: clinical approach, diagnostic techniques, treatment. Extracranial cerebrovascular disease: diagnostic techniques, surgical and endovascular treatment. Diagnosis and treatment of chronic venous disease of the lower limbs and of superficial and deep thrombophlebitis. Congenital and acquired lymphatic disease: diagnosis and treatment.
The teaching methodology will be based on theoretical classes (7 hours), theoretical-practical classes (3 hours), laboratory work (0.5 hours) and field work (3 hours).
Assessment Type: Students will be assessed based on their attendance rate, learning commitment, demonstration of knowledge, attitudes, clinical performance and human contact. Students will also have to take a multiple choice exam.
Eligibility for Exams: Students must attend at least 80% of the classes.
Final Grade: Final exam (50% of the final grade); Continuing assessment (50% of the final grade)
