Abstract

Stroke is the second leading cause of disability and death worldwide, and many new techniques and tools are now available which improve clinical outcomes of stroke patients. New technologies currently being developed and used in surgical procedures are discussed in this meeting summary, along with an overview of a post-market registry study of stroke patients treated with Medtronic neuro-thrombectomy devices. The results of the important study known as PROSPR-SEA will provide essential real world data of stroke patient treatment outcomes in South East Asia.
