Date/Time ET: Monday, December 13, 2021 - 11:30 AM  – 1:00 PM

Description: Although stroke remains the fifth leading cause of death and the number one cause of serious long-term disability in the US, effective acute treatments (thrombolysis and thrombectomy) that reduce death and disability are available and indications keep expanding and evolving. Through case-based presentations and overview of current evidence, faculty will provide emerging applications of interventional treatments. This session with cover important topics, in particular: 1) preclinical and translational thrombolytic therapies; 2) advances in neuroimaging to define the ischemic core and penumbra; and 3) the continuously evolving role of flow diverting stents.

Chair: Diogo C. Haussen, MD, Emory University
