Transcarotid Artery Revascularization || Expanding the Patient Selection for Thrombectomy in Acute Stroke: The New Frontiers
Transcarotid Artery Revascularization
For several decades, carotid endarterectomy has been the criterion standard for carotid revascularization. This portion of the course will review results from recent trials that describe how transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) may be an ideal option for reducing the risk for peri-procedural stroke.
- Compare outcomes associated with transcarotid artery revascularization, transfemoral carotid artery stenting and carotid endarterectomy.
- Recognize recent trial results that describe how transcarotid artery revascularization may be an ideal option for reducing the risk for peri-procedural stroke.
Expanding the Patient Selection for Thrombectomy in Acute Stroke: The New Frontiers
It is possible that patients who are eligible for endovascular treatments with one selection method will be ineligible with other selection methods, which may lead to controversies in patient treatment decisions in clinical practice. This portion of the course will describe optimal patient selection for endovascular treatments.
- Recognize the beneficial effect of endovascular treatment with mechanical thrombectomy in acute ischemic stroke.
- Optimize patient selection for endovascular treatment in acute ischemic stroke.
- Describe the current imaging guideline recommendations for endovascular treatments in clinical practice.
