Ebrain e-learning programme is a gold standard in interactive online learning for professionals in neurosciences. This exciting web-based learning resource is designed to support training and continuous professional development for clinical neuroscience trainees, consultants and non-specialists
Stroke, a major public health problem, being the third most common cause of death after myocardial infarction and cancer, and the leading cause of adult disability is comprehensively presented in eBrain, both ischaemic and haemorrhagic. Ischaemic stroke was covered in the previous neuropenews issues. We will focus on presentation of hemorrhagic stroke in eBrain. As we know, approximately 12% of strokes are caused by brain haemorrhage with an annual incidence of 10–15/100,000 population. Despite being less common than ischaemic stroke, haemorrhage has a significant impact because the subsequent mortality is so high. Lots of valuable information can be found in the module haemorrhagic vascular disease. This module, edited by Patrick Mitchell and Franz Fazekas, includes 23 courses on haemorrhagic stroke, subarachnoid haemorrhage and the important vascular anomalies. The sessions have been written by neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons and neurologists, but are relevant to all specialities that manage patients with these conditions.
Interested physicians can find comprehensive information on aetiology and pathophysiology of spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage and suburahnoid haemorrhage, as well as diagnosis, assessment and management of these conditions. Detailed data can be found on evaluation of aneurisms, arteriovenous malformations, and vein of Galen malformations. A special session is designed to vasospasm. The module includes as well information for paediatric neurologists as paediatric vascular neurosurgery and infantile intraventricular haemorrhage. For specialists in spinal neurological problems there is a session on spinal vascular malformations.
