ICCA STROKE 2016

Acute catheter interventions will change the way we treat stroke!

Over the last 12 months, several randomized clinical trials have clearly demonstrated that embolectomy is superior to lysis. We are facing a similar situation as with acute myocardial infarction years ago, when intravenous lysis was replaced by acute PCI. There are similarities regarding logistics and some technical aspects but also very important differences.

At ICCA Stroke you will learn everything about these procedures: background, imaging, indication, how to do it, post-procedural care as well as avoiding and managing complications.

The ICCA Stroke meeting is going to take place in Prague on April 22-23, 2016.

It is an interdisciplinary and interactive course with recorded cases, lectures, debates and hands-on workshops in stroke and intervention.

ICCA Stroke will give you an update on the latest developments in interventional techniques and devices. It is designed for

  • Interventionalists from all fields who want to learn about acute stroke intervention
  • Neurologists and stroke physicians
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Anyone involved in endovascular stroke treatment, pre- and postprocedural care

We look forward to seeing you in Prague!
