CAMPINAS, BRAZIL, May 9, 2014 —Consulting Radiologists, Ltd. (CRL) neurointerventional radiologist (NIR) Dr. Josser Delgado, spoke on behalf of Abbott Northwestern Hospital and CRL at the 2014 meeting of the Brazilian Society of Interventional Neuroradiology on May 7th and 8th.
Dr. Delgado’s talks focused on organizing stroke systems of care to minimize the time from stroke symptom onset to groin puncture, technical aspects of mechanical thrombectomy, coiling of large brain aneurysms and management of dual antiplatelet therapy for patients with brain aneurysms treated with stents and flow diverters.
He stated that he hoped this unique opportunity to share Abbott Northwestern’s experience in the care of patients with neurovascular conditions would allow him to help other health centers in Brazil optimize the care of patients with major acute ischemic strokes, large brain aneurysms as well as effectively manage the antiplatelet agents administered to patients undergoing endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms.
