Tweet Chat: Management of Minor Stroke
Stroke is excited to announce an upcoming Tweet Chat on the Management of Minor Stroke.
Please join Stroke Social Media Editor Dr. Juan F. Arenillas and Dr. David S. Liebeskind for a stimulating discussion on diagnostic strategies to guide acute management of minor stroke, assessing early recurrence risk, and individualizing secondary prevention in the early phase after a minor stroke or TIA.
Neurologists, neuroradiologists, neurointerventionalists, and others involved in acute stroke care are invited to participate in a discussion that will include important concepts such as the role of intravenous thrombolysis and endovascular therapy in this group of patients, especially in those patients with a large-artery occlusion showing mild clinical deficits. Whether there is a need to have safer thrombolytic drugs and more potent antiplatelet drugs or regimes for minor stroke and TIA patients will also be discussed.
Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Time: 2–3 p.m. EST
Dr. Juan F. Arenillas, MD, (@ArenillasJF) is a Professor of Neurology and the Chair of the Department of Neurology in Hospital Clínico Universitario Valladolid, Spain. He is the Co-Chair of the Network for Clinical Research and Innovation in Stroke in Northern Spain (NORDICTUS). His primary interests are in acute stroke, reperfusion therapies, stroke imaging, and cerebral atherosclerosis.
Dr. David S. Liebeskind, MD, FAHA, FAAN, FANA, (@dliebesk) is Professor of Neurology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he is Director of Outpatient Stroke and Neurovascular Programs. He is Director of the Neurovascular Imaging Research Core, leading global efforts to advance data science and precision medicine of stroke imaging for prevention, acute therapies, and recovery after stroke. Clinical expertise includes cerebral venous thrombosis, arterial dissection, moyamoya syndrome, and other causes of stroke in the young. His principal research interests include novel neuroimaging approaches to elucidate fundamental pathophysiology of cerebrovascular disease in humans with a particular focus on the collateral circulation.
Be sure to follow us @StrokeAHA_ASA and use the hashtag #Minorstroke in your tweets to join the discussion.
We look forward to chatting with you!
