ICCA STROKE 2020

ICCA STROKE 10-11. September, 2021 - ACUTE STROKE INTERVENTIONS AND CAROTID STENTING

  • Interactive case-based discussions
  • Keynote lectures from experts in the field
  • Simulator training opportunities
  • Live/recorded cases
  • Latest clinical trials
  • Newest guidelines

Dear Colleagues,

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 specialities about catheter-bases stroke interventions.

Please join us at ICCA STROKE, September 10 – 11, 2021 in Frankfurt, Germany to see how to remove clots from the brain and make a real difference in the life of your patients. We believe there is no other catheter intervention you can perform with such a huge impact!

ICCA Stroke is an interdisciplinary and interactive course with lectures from leading experts in the field, live cases, step by step presentations, debates and hands-on workshops. You will be guided through the different aspects of carotid stenting and acute stroke treatment: patient selection, imaging, indication, how to do it, pos-procedural care as well as avoiding and managing complications.

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.

ICCA Stroke is facilitated by the World Federation for Interventional Stroke Treatment (WIST) with the aim to ensure that acute catheter based stroke intervention procedures are only performed by well trained doctors. Congress attendees will be accredited CME points and attendance to the meeting provides the foundation for further training in dedicated stroke centers.

Please join us for what we are confident will be an enjoyable and interactive educational meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt!

On behalf of the board of directors
