A-201

Chairman's introduction

O. Jansen; Kiel/DE

Learning Objectives

1. To learn that stroke can be a more complex disease than only acute arterial vessel occlusion.
2. To understand the possibilities of advance imaging.
3. To appreciate different diagnostic approaches.

Abstract

Stroke is the third leading cause for death and the most often reason for invalidation in modern societies. With the introduction of endovascular thrombectomy, medicine has found a sufficient answer for the most vesting cause of severe strokes; however, acute occlusion of larger brain supplying vessels is responsible for only 10-15% of all acute strokes. Besides microvascular disease and acute haemorrhage, there are more rare causes for acute stroke symptoms which have to be kept in mind in the imaging workup of acute stroke patients. This special focus session will take care for three of these more rare but nevertheless important diseases which can result in acute stroke symptoms.
