Vasospasm is a common complication during EVT of acute ischemic stroke, which occurs in 3% to 19% of EST cases. Although the description of vasospasm as a complication of endovascular stroke treatment traces back to as early as 2009, a current treatment paradigm for vasospasm does not exist. Therefore, we aim to investigate the international opinion of neurointerventionalists about the occurrence and management of vasospasm during EVT of acute ischemic stroke.
This anonymous international survey is not supported by any governmental or industrial funding. It is supported by the German Society of Neuroradiology (DGNR). We appreciate your help as neuro-interventionalists and community to help us gain an overview on world-wide standards regarding vasospasm therapy during EVT. The survey takes less than five minutes.
Thank you very much in advance,
