Current endovascular strategies for cerebral venous thrombosis

7/19/2018
More
The recommendations of the report of the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery (SNIS) Standards and Guidelines Committee for endovascular strategies for cerebral venous thrombosis are discussed in this podcast. Editor-in-Chief of JNIS, Felipe de Albuquerque, talks to Justin Fraser (Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Kentucky, Lexington, USA) on behalf of the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery.

M2 occlusions patients may benefit from endovascular therapy

5/29/2018
More
M2 occlusions can present with serious neurological deficits, resulting in large infarcts and significant morbidity and mortality. The paper discussed in this podcast concludes that patients with M2 occlusions and higher baseline deficits (NIHSS score ≥9) may benefit from endovascular therapy, thus potentially expanding the category of acute ischemic strokes amenable to intervention. Listen to the conversation between the Editor-in-Chief of JNIS, Felipe de Albuquerque, and Ansaar Rai...

Balloon guide catheter use in mechanical thrombectomy linked to clinical and angiographic outcomes

3/21/2018
More
The use of balloon guide catheters (BGCs) during mechanical thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke is associated with superior clinical and angiographic outcomes, concludes a systematic review and meta-analysis recently published by JNIS and discussed in this podcast. Waleed Brinjikji (Departments of Radiology and Neurosurgery of the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA) tells the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Felipe Albuquerque the details of his paper ‘Impact of balloon guide catheter...

Favorable revascularization therapy in patient with ASPECTS ≤5 in anterior circulation infarct

1/23/2018
More
A low baseline Alberta Stroke Programme Early CT Score (ASPECTS) is strongly associated with low rates of favorable outcome in patients with acute stroke. The study discussed in this podcast evaluated the efficacy and safety of revascularization therapy in patient with ASPECTS ≤5 in anterior circulation infarct, concluding that revascularization therapy contributed to a favorable clinical outcome at 90 days, especially in patients younger than 70 years. The Editor-in-Chief of JNIS Felipe...

Predictors of false-positive stroke thrombectomy transfers

8/29/2017
More
Diagnosing with clinical scales or imaging? The transfer decision process of patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke to receive thrombectomy is discussed in this podcast. The Editor-in-Chief of JNIS Felipe Albuquerque speaks to Michael Chen (Department of Neurological Surgery, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, USA) about his co-authored study ‘Predictors of false-positive stroke thrombectomy transfers’, published in the September 2017’s issue of the JNIS. Read the full...

Editorial: In defence of “our” stroke patients

6/5/2017
More
JNIS Associate Editor Joshua Hirsch is joined by Shazam Hussain (Cerebrovascular Center, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA) and David Fiorella (Department of Neurosurgery, Stony Brook University, New York, USA) to discuss the June 2017's editorial in the Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery. In this commentary, they analyse the conclusions of the study “Public Health Urgency Created by the Success of Mechanical Thrombectomy Studies in Stroke”, published by Circulation, stating that the...

Long term experience using the ADAPT technique for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke

5/8/2017
More
The direct aspiration first pass technique (ADAPT) has been introduced as a simple and fast method for achieving good angiographic and clinical outcomes using large bore aspiration catheters for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke (AIS). A study recently published in JNIS by Dr Turk et al. conclude that ADAPT is an effective method to achieve good clinical and angiographic outcomes, and serves as a useful firstline method for revascularization. In this podcast, The Editor-in-Chief of...

Implications of limiting mechanical thrombectomy to patients with ELVO meeting top tier evidence

3/23/2017
More
The impact of recent guidelines for endovascular management of emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) awarding top tier evidence to the same selective criteria in recent trials is discussed in this podcast. The Editor-in-Chief of JNIS Felipe Albuquerque talks to the two main authors of the study, "Implications of limiting mechanical thrombectomy to patients with emergent large vessel occlusion meeting top tier evidence criteria". Rohini Bhole and Adam Arthur (University of Tennessee Health...

Decreasing procedure times with a standardized approach to ELVO cases. Welcoming JNIS new editor

1/5/2017
More
In this introductory podcast of Felipe Albuquerque, the new Editor-in-Chief of JNIS talks with Ryan McTaggart, who co-authored the study, "Decreasing procedure times with a standardized approach to emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) cases". The study was run at the single comprehensive stroke center at the Rhode Island Hospital and concluded that a standardized approach to the equipment used and process for ELVO cases at a single institution can dramatically reduce procedure times....

Type of general anesthesia effects on endovascular management of acute ischemic stroke

10/27/2016
More
In this podcast, Andrew Kofke, from the Departments of Anesthesiology and Critical Care and Neurosurgery, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA, reveals the details of his JNIS Editor's Choice paper published in the November 2016 issue. The study concludes that anesthetic techniques and associated physiology used in endovascular management of acute ischemic stroke (EMAIS) are not homogeneous, making any statements about the effects of generic general...
