Other stroke interventions

Here you will find all the latest content on other stroke interventions published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Percutaneous treatment of conditions such as atrial septal defects (ASD) which create haemodynamic burden, or the closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) which has been linked to ischaemic stroke as well as migraine, can have immediate and long-term beneficial effects. Learn more about the use of imaging, adjunctive pharmacotherapy, stents, devices and techniques as well as understanding vascular access and bleeding complications in the treatment of these and other conditions here...

LAA (Left Atrial Appendage) closure

Here you will find all the latest content on left atrial appendage (LAA) closure published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Today, with an aging population, atrial fibrillation is more common and carries with it an increased risk of embolic cerebrovascular accidents. Anticoagulation strategies alone are not sufficient, and as a large proportion of the thrombus involved in these cerebrovascular accidents are seen to arise in the left atrial appendage (LAA), its closure, either surgically or by percutaneous methods, could reduce risk. Learn more about imaging, tools, devices and techniques as well as adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding here…

Carotid stenting

Here you will find all the latest content on carotid stenting published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Preventing stroke due to narrowing of the carotid artery is a primary health concern and while surgery, such as carotid endarterectomy (CEA), has long been available, carotid artery stenting (CAS) offers a possible new and effective endovascular treatment. Keep up with the latest trials, imaging modalities, stents, devices and techniques, adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding here…

Ischaemic stroke

Here you will find all the latest content on ischaemic stroke published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Along with heart disease, stroke has been called one of the most common causes of mortality and disability worldwide. Constantly evolving tools, devices, imaging modalities and techniques, supported by a series of recent trials, points to endovascular interventions as a viable method for treating ischaemic stroke when performed in a timely fashion. Here you can keep up-to-date with this fast changing topic including articles on adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding risks…
