Description:

Each year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death for Americans, and the leading cause of permanent disability. About 85% of all strokes are ischemic, and 15% are hemorrhagic. Recent years have witnessed significant progress in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying injury and recovery after stroke, sex differences in stroke outcome, and the development of innovative endovascular and surgical treatments for this devastating condition. This session will cover important up-to-date and timely topics in stroke research, endovascular management of acute ischemic stroke, role of minimally invasive surgery for intracerebral hemorrhage, sex differences in stroke management, and brain networks implicated in recovery after stroke.

Objective(s):

  • Understand how sex can influence the evaluation and treatment of stroke.
    Review of evolving indications for endovascular therapy and supporting data.
    Understand the current status and ongoing efforts for minimally invasive evacuation of intracerebral hemorrhage.
    Learn about the link between behavioral Clusters and Brain Network Mechanisms of Impairment and Recovery after stroke.
