You will be guided through the different aspects of carotid stenting and acute stroke treatment. The course will cover several topics like patient selection, imaging duplex, MRI and CT, indications, how to get access to the carotids, embolic protection, stent designs, post-procedural care as well as avoiding and managing complications and follow ups. The attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to build an interventional stroke center and start your own carotid stenting program. Please join us at ICCA STROKE, February 18-19, 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany to see how to remove clots from the brain and make a real difference in the life of your patients.

ICCA Stroke

Acute catheter-based stroke interventions have been proven to be superior to systemic lysis in large vessel occlusions in a number of randomized trials. With a number needed to treat (NNT) of only 2, acute stroke interventions are extremely efficient. Up to 10% of acute strokes can and should be treated with catheter techniques, but there are not enough interventionists capable of performing these procedures outside of large stroke centers. We want to change this by educating interventionists from different specialties about catheter-based stroke interventions.

Who should attend

The meeting is designed for interventionists from all fields specializing in acute stroke intervention, vascular surgeons, neurologists and stroke physicians, anesthetists and anyone involved in endovascular stroke treatment, pre- and postprocedural care.
