Hands-on

Required level of previous knowledge and experience of participants: intermediate

Hands-on objectives:

  • Define what an ischemic stroke is, its causes, and diagnostic methods for determining it
  • Explain the place and role of endovascular thrombectomy in the treatment of ischemic stroke
  • Explain the goals and possible outcomes of thrombectomy
  • State the necessary skills and working conditions necessary to perform a thrombectomy
  • Explain in detail endovascular techniques and materials for thrombectomy
  • Explain step by step how endovascular thrombectomy is performed by presenting interventions
  • To enable participants to have all the information necessary to assess the indication and technical performance of mechanical thrombectomy in ischemic stroke

Who is the hands-on for:

  • Specialists, subspecialists and residents in radiology, neuroradiology, interventional radiology, neurology, cardiology, vascular surgery and neurosurgery who are interested in learning and deepening their knowledge about the possibilities of treating ischemic stroke with endovascular thrombectomy.
