The AANS and the Richard Lende Winter Neurosurgery Conference controls the content and production of this CME activity and attempts to ensure the presentation of balanced, objective information.

Failure or refusal to disclose or the inability to satisfactorily resolve the identified conflict will result in the withdrawal of the invitation to participate in any AANS education activities. The ACCME defines a "commercial interest" as any entity producing marketing, re-selling, or distributing healthcare goods or services consumed by, or used on patients. Any potential conflicts of interests have been reviewed to ensure the content is valid and aligned with the interest of the activity audience.
