Drip-and-Drive: ship the interventionalist not the patient for MTE

Lecture from SLICE 2018

Stroke treatments require highly experienced teams of neurologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists, technicians and interventional neuroradiologists. Demand in the USA alone for mechanical thrombectomy (MT) has more than doubled in the last few years and primary stroke centers cannot meet this challenge.

Discover the advantages of bringing the specialist to the patient, allowing a single interventional radiologist to cover several PSCs for a lower cost while maintaining a high level of quality – and saving up to 2 hours over the classic approach.
