ACUTE REHABILITATION Grand Rounds: Neurointerventional Imaging and Treatment for Ischemic Stroke

June 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Presented ByJeremy J. Heit, MD, PhD

Restoration of cerebral blood flow is the most important step in preventing irreversible damage to hypoperfused brain cells after ischemic stroke from large-vessel occlusion. For those patients who do not respond to (or are not eligible for) intravenous thrombolysis, endovascular therapy has become standard of care. A shift is currently taking place from rigid time windows for intervention (time is brain) to physiology-driven paradigms that rely heavily on neuroimaging. At this time, one can reasonably anticipate that more patients will be treated, and that outcomes will keep improving.

Desired Outcomes

  • Describe regions of brain ischemic during stroke.
  • Identify thrombectomy candidates based on noninvasive imaging.
  • Describe how endovascular thrombectomy is performed.
  • Explain the impact of thrombectomy on patient outcome after ischemic stroke.
  • Describe which patients should be referred for consideration of thrombectomy.
