Award for Sen. John Fetterman, New Research on Pediatric Stroke, Shortening Hospital Stays, and Global Innovations in Aneurysm and Stroke Care to Be Presented at Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery's 20th Annual Meeting

SAN DIEGO, July 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurointerventional surgeons from around the world will convene at the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery's (SNIS) 20th Annual Meeting from July 31 through August 3 in San Diego, California, to discuss groundbreaking research and developments in the field of neurointerventional surgery and reflect on global achievements over the two decades since the Society's first annual meeting.

Meeting sessions will cover new research on topics that include treating stroke in pediatric patients and implementing new procedures that can minimize the number of days stroke patients remain hospitalized. Sessions also will include master classes and offer a look at the future of neurointervention. In addition, attendees will discuss international developments in neurointervention, as well as how the field can better embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion in both its practices and treatments.

This year's Amy Walters Patient Lecture will be given by U.S. Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) and introduced by his treating physician, SNIS member Sudhakar Satti, MD. Professor Nobuyuki Sakai, MD, a renowned neurointerventionalist, will deliver the Grant Hieshima Luminary Lecture. Professor Sakai will discuss innovations in neurointerventional care.

"Our members' dedication to the highest levels of patient care is evident as we celebrate this 20-year milestone," said SNIS President J Mocco, MD, MS. "The field of neurointerventional surgery has changed rapidly and on a global scale. Our practitioners use the SNIS Annual Meeting to stay on top of technology and treatment paradigm innovations. The convening provides critical education, much-needed scientific discourse, and crucial opportunities for academia and industry partners to discuss better ways to help our patients."

The 20th Annual Meeting will highlight promising new neurointerventional research, with press releases available on the following abstracts:

  • "Projected Increase in Thrombectomy Volume Based on Large Core Trials"
  • "Comparing Outcomes After Thrombectomy for Acute Ischemic Stroke Due to Large-Vessel Occlusion: Children vs. Adults—A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis"
  • "Impact of Stent Retriever Tip Design on Distal Embolization During Mechanical Thrombectomy—A Randomized In Vitro Evaluation"
  • "The Safety and Feasibility of a Care Hotel Model in Elective Neuroendovascular Interventions—A Single Institutional Experience"
  • "Safety and Functional Outcomes With Early Initiation of Antiplatelet Therapy Following Mechanical Thrombectomy in Emergent Large Vessel Occlusion Strokes: A Single Institution Registry Study"
  • "Treatment Outcomes for ARUBA Eligible Brain Arteriovenous Malformations: A Comparison of Real-world Data from the NVQI-QOD AVM Registry to the ARUBA Trial"
