Ischaemic stroke intervention - Why the acute stroke network is important


With more than 15 million strokes occurring worldwide, and the number of neuro-interventionalists still limited – what role can interventional cardiologists play?

Join neurosurgeon L. N. Hopkins as he speaks with A. Cremonesi and B. Reimers on this challenging question. Learn about the similarities in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction and acute ischaemic stroke; of the 5 recent trials that demonstrate the benefits of endovascular interventions over thrombolysis alone, and learn why the time has come for cardiologists to join with their colleagues in neuroradiology to respond effectively to this healthcare challenge. Can the precept “time is muscle” translate to “time is brain”?
