TASTE - Thrombectomy for Acute Stroke Treatment Evaluation

Création médicale à Essen

L'édition d'Alice 2013 (Klinik für Neuroradiologie Alfried Krupp) a été l'occasion d'une rencontre passionnante avec Iris Grunwald, consultante à l'Université d'Oxford. Cette rencontre a engendré la création d'un logotype pour une étude internationale portant sur l'évaluation des traitements par thrombectomie des accidents vasculaires cérébraux.


Although it is widely recognized that time is of the essence in the management of stroke, there are currently few efficient stroke centers that prospective new centers may emulate. This book offers a concise and practical guide on how to set up and run an acute stroke service tailored to the needs of the individual center as a provider of primary, secondary or tertiary care. All aspects of the subject are tackled. Essential knowledge on current imaging and treatment options is provided and guidance is offered on organizing a site-specific stroke pathway so as to ensure the quickest possible provision of treatment. The authors played an integral part in the development and operation of one of Europe’s most successful early stroke centers and also have experience of the factors that can undermine the creation of world-class stroke units. This handbook will be an invaluable source of information for every member of the stroke team.
