Posted on November 4, 2010

Dr. Demetrius Lopes, endovascular-trained neurosurgeon and his colleagues at Rush Univeristy Medical Center in Chicago are looking forward to presenting research which unveils important information on the limited use of intra-arterial treatment of stroke.  Transfer delay was identified as one of the most important contributing factors.  The authors present several possible solutions, including formal hopital transfer agreements, dedicated ambulances or innovative EMS triage protocols.
