Interventions in the aorta and manipulations in the aortic arch have become a “potential source of embolisation to the brain,” notes Roger Greenhalgh, Chairman of the CX Programme Organising Board. The Acute Stroke Consensus Plenary Programme will address the scope of this problem and PATHWAYS OF CARE to treat acute stroke from a multidisciplinary perspective including: neuroradiology, neurology, stroke medicine and vascular surgery specialists.
Key topics include:
• What is wrong with current carotid guidelines and why are guidelines misleading?
• What are the latest intracranial intervention pathways of care?
• Rapid vertebral artery interventions are essential (VIST and VAST trials)
The CX Acute Stroke Consensus update will take place at the Charing Cross Symposium on Friday 28 April – Upper Main Auditorium, Olympia Grand, London, UK
