Access to and delivery of acute ischaemic stroke treatment: a survey of national scientific societies and stroke experts in 44 European countries
20 July 2018
Acute stroke treatment strategies significantly improve the outcome for patients with ischaemic stroke. Up to now, reliable data on access to and delivery of acute stroke treatment strategies throughout Europe are lacking. Therefore, ESO, ESMINT, EAN and SAFE have surveyed stroke experts in 44 European countries. The researchers observed major inequalities in acute stroke treatment between and within these countries. The data shall assist decision makers implementing tailored stroke care programmes for reducing stroke-related morbidity and mortality in Europe.
EU Standards of Practice in Interventional Stroke Treatment
A working group of ESNR, ESMINT and the UEMS Division for Neuroradiology has developed a consensus paper on standards of practice in interventional stroke treatment. It was reviewed and approved by the Executive Boards of ESNR and ESMINT and by the members of the UEMS Division for Neuroradiology in 2017.
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."
ESMINT's Standards Of Practice in Interventional Stroke Treatment
11th September 2015
The Standards of Practice Document has been presented to the audience during the ESMINT Congress on Friday, September 11, 2015 and was approved by an overwhelming majority of ESMINT and ESO participants. Please read below the full text of the statement:
