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…

What to expect in interventional cardiology in 2017

PCR Chair William Wijns gives us his take on 2017: expanded indications for TAVI, new BRS data, trials on device based therapies in arterial hypertension, launch of Stent Save a Life, slow implementation of interventional treatment of acute ischemic stroke, celebrating 40 years of balloon angioplasty and EuroPCR 2017. An exciting year lies ahead!

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”?
