ESMINT's Siilo App

Siilo - the messenger for ESMINT

To enable the neurointerventional community to exchange information on the latest cases and learn from each other’s experience on a daily basis, ESMINT has initiated a dedicated network on the Siilo App.

We will use Siilo to:

  • Help you find and communicate directly with all your colleagues in the ESMINT address book, which is located in the ‘Spaces’ tab.
  • Have topic-specific discussions and exchanges in the ESMINT space. Ask and answer questions yourself and read what others are writing – ESMINT group leaders are available as experts.
  • Create chat-groups on urgent matters with relevant colleagues.
  • Make and receive secure video and voice calls to and from other users of the app

The current channels in the ESMINT space at Siilo are:

  • Urgent case support: This channel is designed to provide you with support to help you with an urgent case.
  • Aneurysms: Share your experiences, ask questions and evaluate findings.
  • Stroke: Share your experiences, ask questions and evaluate findings.
  • AVM/DAVF: Share your experiences, ask questions and evaluate findings.
  • COVID-19: Address your COVID-19 concerns – whether it’s a treatment guideline, certain cases or a very specific question. Or maybe you’ve read a super-good paper and think others should know about it? Post it so that others can see what’s current in the literature about COVID-19!
  • Recent Publications & Research: Share the newest publications and research!
  • ESMINT Congress: The ESMINT Congress is at the forefront of cutting-edge science and innovation. Discuss topics related to our ESMINT Congress here.
