The 19th-20th All-Russian Scientific-Practical Neurosurgery Conference Polenov's Readings was one of the first events held as part of the WCRC for Personalized Medicine. It took place from March 31 to April 2, 2021.
Scientific conferences, seminars and symposia that are aimed at fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange for further joint development are crucial for successful interaction of scientists working in the areas of world-class research centres.
“It is in this context that this event should be considered as an essential activity addressing the tasks of the national Healthcare project based on the concepts of translational, personalized and patient-centered medicine,” said Evgeny Shlyakhto, Director General of Almazov Centre, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences. “With all that last and this year has brought us, we have something to be proud of: together with all other Russian healthcare professionals, neurosurgeons and neurologists have been successfully solving the task set by the state to combat the epidemic and have managed to save hundreds and thousands of lives of our people.”
In his welcome address to the participants of the conference, Director of Polenov Neurosurgical Institute (branch of Almazov Centre) Konstantin Samochernykh emphasized that this event is of high scientific importance and this year’s anniversary conference commemorates the memory of the outstanding neurosurgeons who were at the origins of the neurosurgical service in Russia.
The conference took place in Park Inn by Radisson Pribaltiyskaya. During the 3 days of the event, the participants were able to present to the fullest extent the experience gained in various aspects of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation in neurosurgical patients. They discussed such topics as pediatric neurosurgery, modern research for the successful recovery of patients after brain injury, neuro-anesthesiology and neuro-resuscitation, neurological injury, management of patients with epilepsy, control of intracranial pressure, neuro-oncology.
The participants also explored the possibilities of neurorehabilitation and neuropsychiatry as well as the issues of molecular neuroscience.
Particular attention was focused on the discussions on spinal, vascular and functional neurosurgery, surgery of peripheral nerves.
The conference also featured a master class titled “Neuropathy of the Facial Nerve: From Neurosurgery to Rehabilitation.”
Participants from various specialties actively contributed to the discussion of the issues of neurosurgical and neurological conditions in terms of interdisciplinary interaction, challenging aspects of neurophysiological diagnosis, modern approaches to the rehabilitation care for patients as well as the experience and results in the management of patients with various diagnoses, patient-tailored treatment and preventive measures.
