Lessons Learned and Implications for Systems of Care in the Stent Retrieval Era - By Dr. Mayank Goyal - 2015
Dr. Mayank Goyal is innovating hospitals two ways: through the introduction of the multiphase CT angiogram which produces reliable images that can be easily interpreted, and through the Brisk Recanalization Ischemic Stroke Kit which streamlines medical procedures.
Canadian researchers have completed an international randomized controlled trial showing that a clot retrieval procedure, known as endovascular treatment (ET), can dramatically improve patient outcomes after an acute ischemic stroke. The study, led by researchers at the University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI), shows a dramatic improvement in outcomes and a reduction in deaths from stroke. The results of this study were published in the February 11, 2015 online edition of the
SIR-RFS Webinar: Changing acute stroke treatment:
A journey The recent revolution in acute stroke therapy has mandated that hospitals offering catheter directed stroke therapy develop streamlined protocols for timely diagnosis and treatment. Come hear Dr. Mayank Goyal, professor at the University of Calgary and Director of Research, describe the protocols in place at the Calgary Stroke Program, including a discussion of the imaging modalities implemented in the hyperacute stroke setting in preparation for catheter directed intervention. The talk will also cover lessons learned from IMS-III and other recent trials, the necessity of rapid diagnosis / treatment, as well as future directions in the treatment of acute stroke.
