ASKLEPIOS Course on Mechanical thrombectomy

June 26-28, 2019; Lille/France
Course information
The course is aimed at board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in understanding the challenges of thrombectomy. Mechanical thrombectomy using stentretriever is the new standard treatment for patients suffering from anterior circulation acute ischemic strokes with large vessel occlusions. Due to the dramatic increase in the number of acute ischemic stroke patients receiving MT for the last 3 years, the need to train physicians in mechanical thrombectomy has also become more prominent. Renowned European experts will ensure a high-quality teaching programme, combining lectures, hands-on workshops and interactive clinical case discussions.

Learning objectives 
  • to understand the ongoing increase of thrombectomy and its organisational challenges
  • to be familiar with the medical part of acute ischemic stroke (from biology to advanced radiological techniques)
  • to be able to understand the intervention (from the very beginning to a more technical matter), to select patient for mechanical thrombectomy, and to know pitfalls and tips and tricks
