The World Stroke Organization is among the 12 medical societies, which endorsed the Revised guidelines for the nonsurgical, image-guided interventional treatment of acute ischemic strokeThis revision updates standards of practice first published in 2013 and establishes 15 metrics on patient care and outcomes, based on findings of recent scientific studies about interventions such as thrombectomy (clot removal) and revascularization (opening blocked arteries). The guidelines cover important factors in selecting patients for interventional treatments and ensuring optimal outcomes.
 
The endorsement of this important document is in line with WSO’s mission to reduce the global burden of stroke through prevention, treatment and long-term care. The updated guidelines were published in the April edition of the peer-reviewed journal of the Society of Interventional Radiology, the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology.
