Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

My blog is not to help survivors recover, it is to have the 10 million yearly stroke survivors light fires underneath their doctors, stroke hospitals and stroke researchers to get stroke solved. 100% recovery. The stroke medical world is completely failing at that goal, they don't even have it as a goal.

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

ESO-ESMINT-ESNR Conclude 5th Annual Stroke Winter School

Talk and NO action. Nothing on creating stroke protocols so survivors can recover. Management, NOT cure and 100% recovery. We'll never get anywhere until stroke survivors are in charge.
The 5th ESO ESMINT ESNR Stroke Winter School was held at Inselspital in Bern, Switzerland from the 30th  January to 2nd of February 2018.
The primary aim of the 5th ESO ESMINT ESNR Stroke Winter School was bringing together European stroke physicians and neurointerventionalists in order to enhance interdisciplinary management of patients with acute ischaemic stroke.
The organising committee welcomed 64 participants; 36 stroke physicians and 28 neurointerventionalists from 20 different countries: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia And Herzegovina, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.
The 29 speakers including neurologists, interventional and non-interventional neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropediatricians led challenging discussions. The teaching program included 31 lectures and 4-6 tutorials. The main focus of the lectures was interdisciplinary treatment of acute stroke. Session topics included; acute stroke imaging, acute treatment strategies including endovascular approaches, stroke treatment in difficult circumstances and needs to set up an interdisciplinary stroke center. Tutorials were given separately for neurointerventionalists and stroke physicians.
A special highlight for the interventional neurointerventionalists were the hands-on teaching sessions with the animal model. Small groups of 4-5 participants were given the opportunity to perform diagnostic angiography and endovascular treatment procedures such as thrombectomy with multiple devices.
Another highlight was the newly established stroke simulation course: stroke physicians and neurointerventionalists took part in a real-life setting with simulated clinical stroke cases: physicians had to take care of the stroke patient and to decide on acute stroke management. Physicians were observed by colleagues and professionals and received feedback on their performance.
During the stroke winter school a faculty meeting was held with members of the ESO, ESMINT and ESNR leadership to discuss future common strategies to enhance the quality of stroke management. Main topic was the training of future neurointerventionalists in areas with a current lack of experienced staff.
The following sponsors contributed to the realization of the stroke winter school:
Stryker, Microvention, Penumbra, Cerenovus, Medtronic, 1a Medical AG, Balt, Vascular Medical, Rapid medical, Phenox, Siemens, Daiichi-Sankyo, Boehringer Ingelheim
There will be a 6th ESO ESMINT ESNR Stroke Winter School end of January 2019 in Bern. More information will be available on and at  in due time.
