The ESMINT Research Committee

Dr Francis Turjman chairs the ESMINT Research Committee.  The Committee is available to help members in communicating details of research to the ESMINT Community. The goals are to assist in collaborative research by European centres and to aid setting up of clinical trials. The committee assists both clinical and fundamental research and wishes to establish ESMINT Research Awards.

Currently, ESMINT supports an audit of the long term follow up of patients treated with  Flow Diverters in order to establish data on the risks of delayed spontaneous haemorrhage. This study is co-ordinated by Pr. István Szikora of the Neurological Institute of Budapest.

Members are invited to contact Dr Turjman with suggestions and to register their interest in any of the ESMINT sponsored programs or trials.
