Thank you to all who joined us September 10th for a very special BANANAZ UKRAINE session hosted in Kyiv. The discussion we had is by far the best guide for neurovascular management of penetrating head and neck trauma in the world today. Nothing comes even close.  See recording here.

With indescribable heartbreak, we mourn the death of Dr. Kittipong Jack Srivatanakul. He died from cancer on July 9th.  Known all over The World as Dr. Kittipong, he was a dearest friend and colleague, known both worldwide and in Japan as a leader in neurovascular education and treatment.  A fellow of Lasjaunias, he possessed incredibly deep and clinically-relevant understanding of functional anatomy.  Together we launched the highly successful BANANA course in 2019, and subsequently the pandemic-era BANANAZ online series.  Some of his presentations are available on the youtube channel (venous sinuses, superficial venous system, deep venous system for example) — and are based on his beautiful and instantly recognizable and drawings and segmentations.  We co-authored a number of publications, including the most recent paper on Venous Anatomy, which came out on the day of his passing.

The grief of his loss is overwhelming.  The BANANA 2022 course will be dedicated to his memory, and our commitment to neurovascular education will be part of his legacy. is dedicated to the memory of Professor Pierre Lasjaunias.  A brilliant anatomist and prolific author, his landmark publication of “Surgical Neuroangiography“, together with  Drs. Berenstein and Ter Brugge, revolutionized the field of neurointerventional radiology.  His ideas are ever-present. For example, neurovascular evolution and vascular neuroembryology sections are essentially simplified versions of his work, and are particularly recommended for neurointerventional trainees.
