Considering this data alongside disparities in advanced treatment options like mechanical thrombectomy, our objective is to better understand what equipment, staff, and resources are required to perform a safe and effective MT for acute ischemic stroke caused by a large vessel occlusion (LVO). We are seeking insights from medical practitioners worldwide who conduct mechanical thrombectomy to understand what they believe are the minimum, essential human resources, systems and infrastructure necessary to perform the procedure safely and effectively. We also aim to determine the differences between practitioners' perception of the minimal requirements versus the optimal or desired resources. We aim to use this data to help inform healthcare systems and governments which are trying to develop MT capabilities as part of their national or regional stroke programs.
Join us in our quest to make stroke care accessible to everyone.
