Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability in the US, but can we do more to improve those statistics? The answer is yes! Clinical trials have validated significant benefits of Thrombectomy when available for the treatment of stroke. The DAWN and DEFUSE-3 Trials have expanded the window for Endovascular Thrombectomy up to 24 hours for patients with Large Vessel Occlusion (LVO). While LVOs only account for approximately 1/3 of all strokes, they account for 60% of all disability and 90% of all mortality. Endovascular Thrombectomy can change those outcomes.

Benefits of an immediate treatment response to a stroke or “brain attack” have paralleled the benefits of coronary intervention in treating a “heart attack.” With this medical evolution, the use of clot busters, angioplasty, and stents are quickly becoming the standard arsenal for stroke treatment – and, as in coronary intervention, time is of the essence.

With so much potential for quality outcome improvement, society-sponsored advocacy is proving very successful in influencing legislative changes, including mandating suspected Large Vessel Occlusion (LVO) patients be taken to the nearest Thrombectomy Capable Center. Even where legislative changes have not yet occurred, many EMS providers have begun adopting these protocols. The potential loss of this inbound EMS traffic may affect your bottom line.

Join our experts for this important webinar that:

  • Reviewed Thrombectomy service and its potential effect on current stroke outcomes
  • Examined current efforts to change legislation to route LVO patients to Thrombectomy Capable Centers
  • Presented a client implementation journey for Mechanical Thrombectomy and the positive impact the expanded services are having in the community

Organizations that have already completed the foundational work associated with a formal stroke program are often much better positioned for neuro-interventional program implementation than they perceive. Position your neuroscience program for future growth and success by adding Thrombectomy!
