The advent of endovascular thrombectomy is set to revolutionise the treatment of stroke but poses significant challenges to deliver a high-quality service consistently across an increasingly austere NHS. Training in endovascular therapies by cerebrovascular surgeons has proliferated around the world but has been limited in the NHS. With neurosurgeons expressing interest in acquiring endovascular skills could they and other neuroscience specialists play a role in delivery of future stroke services?
This meeting brings the BNVG together with the leading exponents of endovascular and stroke therapy in the UK to better understand the challenges in developing hybrid practice and an to explore together how high quality training might be delivered. There will be a forum to discuss the development of our subarachnoid haemorrhage audit and the groups position on the treatment of unnruptured brain AVM.
