Dear Friends, dear Colleagues,
Since the publication of the positive thrombectomy trials, the international professional media is noisy with a variety of propositions from different medical specialties checking in into interventional treatment of acute ischemic stroke. Our Society has already expressed its standpoint reinforcing the need of proper training in clinical neurosciences, neuroimaging and neruointerventions for all physicians prior to getting engaged in treatment of ischemic stroke.
It is my great pleasure to report the recent publication of the “Training Guidelines for Endovascular Ischemic Stroke Intervention: An International multi-society consensus document” in multiple journals, including EJMINT. This document is the result of a great effort by multiple societies and a number of individuals that was initiated during the last ESMINT Congress. The basics of the Guidelines were agreed upon at a multisociety meeting during WFITN 2015 in Gold Coast and the document finalized within the past few months with the active collaboration of all participating worldwide societies.
The impact of such a global consensus document is invaluable in securing the continued quality of stroke treatment in acute ischemic stroke around the globe. I wish to thank all of our global partners for their dedicated cooperation and all of those assisting in the coordination of this great effort.
I am convinced this work will be of great benefit in helping (re)-organization of stroke care in your respective countries. Please read the consensus document on EJMINT.
The preliminary programme for ECMINT 1.4 is now available. The course takes place June 21-25, 2016 in Oxford, UK. The registration will open in March 2016.
