Training Guidelines for Endovascular Ischemic Stroke Intervention: An International multi-society consensus document

18th February 2016

A group of international multi-disciplinary Neuro-Interventional societies, among them ESMINT, which are involved in the endovascular management of acute ischemic stroke, have put forth these training guidelines. They believe that "a neuroscience background, dedicated neurointerventional training, and stringent peer review and quality assurance processes are critical to ensuring the best possible patient outcomes. Well-trained neurointerventionalists are a critical component of an organized and efficient team needed to deliver clinically effective mechanical thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke patients."
