Advancing Pain Management Science and Education: ASRA Special Session

This session will highlight recent advances in understanding for chronic pain management that influence procedural outcomes. The session will define the influence of opioids on surgical outcomes and methods to mitigate the negative effects. Contrast hypersensitivity reactions will be explored and best practices will be defined. Recent concerns regarding gadolinium-based contrast agents including brain deposition and acute neurotoxicity will be characterized. Furthermore, the significant concerns surrounding gadolinium use as an alternative contrast agent in individuals with iodinated contrast hypersensitivity reactions will be explored. The future of interventional headache care will be explored. The session will also analyze the current research on analgesic pharmacological and interventional therapies and their impact on cancer disease progression and recurrence.

Frontiers of Non-Invasive Neuromodulation

This session will present several forms of non-invasive techniques for modulating activity in the nervous system. These techniques will include electrical, magnetic, and optical stimulation modalities. This session will address the feasibility of these approaches in clinical applications and present future directions. This session will cover non-invasive modulation of activity in the vagus nerve and the brain.

Neuromodulation in Epilepsy: From Bench to OR to Outcomes

Neuromodulation treatments to treat drug-resistant epilepsy are expanding, including treatment paradigms that stimulate the brain directly to prevent or reduce seizures. With a growing number of options, several questions arise. What is the science behind brain stimulation in epilepsy, and how can animal models help us find new targets? What effects does neurostimulation have on brain networks beyond seizure control? How do we determine the best stimulation paradigm for an individual patient, and should it be open or closed loop? This session will examine how far we've come and where to go next in the rapidly growing field of epilepsy neuromodulation.
