Time: 2 p.m.
Theme: Ischemia and stroke
Module: ToolBox
Session: Interventional radiology and stroke
Instructor: Barnwell
Description: When a stroke happens, there is no time to waste, i.e. "time is brain". Dr. Barnwell will present some of the acute interventions that are now in use to prevent damage. The general approach to be described involves access to blood vessels in the brain using "endovascular procedures". The procedures include intracranial thrombolysis, intracranial angioplasty and stenting of occluded vessels; and the treatment of intracranial aneurysms.
