As you well know, mechanical thrombectomy has dramatically changed the landscape of stroke care as well as stroke care organization, and public health institutions are faced with the challenge of swiftly providing equal access to this high technical level procedure with rapidly broadening indications.
As such, we are interested in conducting an overall appraisal of technical mechanical thrombectomy practices in Europe, as well as an appraisal of local organizations.
ESMINT and the EYMINT research collaborative group have come together to carry out this project, and you are invited to complete an online survey so as to obtain an overview of mechanical thrombectomy practices in Europe.
Every interventional INR is invited to respond to collect individual responses about patient selection and endovascular procedures.
Data will be treated anonymously for the research project, and the questionnaire will take approximately 5 minutes.
Please feel free to forward this survey to non ESMINT-member practitioners.
As a second step, another survey will be sent to collect general centre-based information regarding mechanical thrombectomy.
