Challenges in Endovascular Therapy for Acute Stroke- What Should the Rest of Us Know?

May 11, 2021

Moderator: Jordan Bonomo, MD, FCCM, FNCS
Other Participants: Aaron W. Grossman, MD, PhD

The fundamentals of acute stroke care now include neurointervention for many patients. Dr. Grossman takes us through what a neurointerventional physician is thinking when evaluating a consult, what they can offer in the acute setting and how to assess the value of tissue perfusion imaging in diagnostic algorithms. Tissue imaging may be the future and the clock time is being less emphasized especially in posterior circulation strokes. Angiographic results and clinical results don't always match and Dr. Grossman helps us understand why and what it means in clinical practice including when to use anesthesia and what the challenges are to caring for the acute stroke patient in the interventional suite. This is the podcast that lays the foundation for understanding what neurointerventionalists do once the patient leaves the ED or ICU and when to call them.
