Neuroscience Lunch and Learn Conference: The Science and Evidence of Extended Window and Wake Up Strokes
Patients waking up with stroke symptoms represent a distinct but underprivileged subgroup of patients with stroke. Because in wake-up stroke the time of symptom onset is unknown these patients are a challenge to acute stroke treatment. During this lecture Dr. Dabus will discuss the reasons why patients may benefit from treatment in the late window between 6 to 24 hours after onset.
Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Hematology Oncologists, Radiation Therapists, General Surgeons, General Practitioners, Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Nurses, Social Workers, Patient Navigators and all other interested healthcare professionals.
- Assess what patients will benefit from treatment in the late window between 6 - 24 hours after the onset of a stroke.
- Identify current indications for endovascular treatment of wake up and late window strokes.
