Room: Centennial I

Session Overview

Chair: Santiago Ortega-Gutiérrez, MD, MSc – University of Iowa
Co-Chair: Magdy H. Selim, MD, PhD – Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

The Cerebrovascular and Interventional Neurology session will cover new advances in managing acute ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Attendees will learn about management of cryptogenic stroke, the changing paradigm in acute ischemic therapy from clock-based to tissue-based selection of appropriate candidates for repercussion therapy, the new imaging methods to identify high-risk unruptured aneurysm and the stroke risk associated with carotid webs.


  • ​​​To discuss the diagnosis and management of rare causes of stroke.
    To gain insight into novel imaging methods to identify cerebral aneurysms at high risk for rupturing. To shed more light on the use of advanced neuroimaging to select candidates for thrombectomy.
    To review the role of carotid webs as a risk factor for ischemic stroke.
    To highlight the potential utility of machine learning in stroke recovery.
