Intra-arterial treatment of acute ischemic stroke requires changes to acute stroke services since most hospitals do not have on-site intra-arterial treatment facilities.

I’m Carmen Lahiff-Jenkins, Managing Editor of the International Journal of Stroke and I spoke to Dr Alfonso Ciccone director of the department of neuroscience at the hospital Mantova, Italy who explained to us how they conducted research to identify models for delivery of intra-arterial treatment and to compare process performance and clinical and radiological outcomes effectiveness of the different models.

You’ve been listening to a podcast interview with Dr Alfonso Ciccone from the Azienda Socio Sanitaria Territoriale di Mantova, Italy author of the recently published article Systematic Review Of Organizational Models For Intra-Arterial Treatment Of Acute Ischemic Stroke in the International Journal of Stroke.
