Focus on advances in stroke care worldwide
The Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN) is committed to improving stroke prevention strategies as well as expanding access to the most impactful and modern acute stroke treatments to patients worldwide. Stroke and interventional neurologists who are members of SVIN continue to work collaboratively with interventional neuro-radiologists and endovascular neurosurgeons to achieve better outcomes for stroke patients.
In the past year, many important advances in stroke science have occurred that will have a tremendous impact worldwide. Drs. Raul Nogueira, Francisco Mont’Alverne, and their colleagues completed the Resilient Mechanical Thrombectomy trial in Brazil, which continues to demonstrate the remarkable treatment effect of acute ischemic stroke thrombectomy worldwide. In addition, The WEB-IT Study, led by endovascular neurosurgeon Dr. Adam Arthur of the Woven EndoBridge (WEB) Endosaccular Aneurysm Embolization Device was published and has led to the application of this technology in the United States. This study demonstrated the superior safety and efficacy of the WEB compared to previous technologies for the treatment of wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. Both studies will undoubtedly have an important impact on both improved patient outcomes and access to modern stroke therapies.
The SVIN 2019 Annual Meeting, taking place November 20-23 in Atlanta, GA, is a premier scientific forum for leaders in the field of stroke and neurointerventional surgery. As the SVIN Annual Meeting continues to grow, this year’s panel of leading stroke experts, organized by Dr. Alicia Castonguay, was charged to rigorously review more than 200 scientific research submissions to select the latest clinical trials and breakthrough technology to be showcased at the SVIN’s 2019 Annual Meeting. SVIN’s 2019 agenda is mainly focused on stroke advances in acute care, artificial intelligence and diagnostic pathways, Quality, Outcomes and Research Registries, Clinical Research and all the latest advanced practices.
The Annual Meeting kicks off again this year with the 7th annual Stroke Center Day (formerly the Stroke Center Workshop) taking place on November 20th and will conclude on November 23rd with the 2nd annual Fellows Workshop. The Stroke Center Day is a full-day program providing a unique opportunity for healthcare administrators and healthcare providers to delve into what makes a successful stroke center by hearing from the experts. A wide range of topics will be presented that are essential to the business, healthcare delivery, and research that are integral to stroke center operations.
