CaMSIGN was honoured and pleased to welcome Dr. Amit Persad (PGY-6) and Dr. Nicole Pendleton (PGY-2) at the University of Saskatchewan Neurosurgery in co-leading an interactive case-presentation session involving microneurosurgical videos! This was a great opportunity for medical students to virtually “shadow” neurosurgery at the University of Saskatchewan and practice their clinical approach to the following cases: 1. Clipping of an aneurysm involving the middle cerebral artery. 2. Translabyrinthine craniotomy for vestibular schwannoma. 3. Spinal dural arteriovenous fistula. 4. Retrosigmoidal craniotomy for a collision tumour. 5. Microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia.
