Decompressive Craniectomy – From evidence to challenging decisions in clinical practice
14 December 2022, 18:30 CET
The 7th Episode of ESO`s Educational Webinars will feature speakers Dr. Soffien Ajmi (Stavanger University Hospital) and Dr. Bart van der Worp (University Medical Center Utrecht), focusing on decompressive craniectomy in malignant MCA ischaemic stroke.
Dr. Ajmi will discuss a real-life case demonstrating the complexity of decisions required in clinical practice to balance this life-saving intervention against the probability of severe disability, and to what extent this remains valid in patients outside the specific indications of the seminal trials.
Dr. van der Worp will discuss the evidence base and indications in clinical practice for when intervention is appropriate in this population, and what we know about more difficult questions that occur in real-life practice.
The webinar will be moderated by Dr. Else C. Sandset and Dr. Alastair Webb.
