Mechanical Thrombectomy (MT) guidelines are being updated by a multidisciplinary committee chaired by UKNG's Alex Mortimar.
UKNG members actively support and participate in ESMINT guidelines development.
Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) has become the cornerstone of acute ischemic stroke management in patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO). The aim of this guideline document is to assist physicians in their clinical decisions with regard to MT.
Standards for providing safe acute ischaemic stroke thrombectomy services
Training Guidelines for Endovascular Ischemic Stroke Intervention: An International multi-society consensus document.
This document sets out standards for training in Interventional Neuroradiology (INR) in Europe.
Guidance for practitioners seeking training to participate in an acute ischaemic stroke thrombectomy service in the UK: a response to level-1 evidence of the beneﬁt of mechanical thrombectomy for patients with acute ischaemic stroke and proven large vessel occlusion.
Objective The Pragmatic Ischaemic Thrombectomy Evaluation (PISTE) trial was a multicentre, randomised, controlled clinical trial comparing intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) alone with IVT and adjunctive intra- arterial mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in patients who had acute ischaemic stroke with large artery occlusive anterior circulation stroke conﬁrmed on CT angiography (CTA).
