Dr. Soffien Ajmi (Stavanger University Hospital) and Prof. Bart van der Worp (University Medical Center Utrecht) will lead the next ESO Educational Webinar, focusing on decompressive craniectomy in malignant MCA ischaemic stroke.
Dr. Ajmi will discuss a real-life case demonstrating the complexity of decisions required in clinical practice to balance this life-saving intervention against the probability of severe disability, and to what extent this remains valid in patients outside the specific indications of the seminal trials.
Prof. van der Worp will discuss the evidence base and indications in clinical practice for when intervention is appropriate in this population, and what we know about more difficult questions that occur in real-life practice.
The webinar will be moderated by Dr. Else C. Sandset and Dr. Alastair Webb.
The presentations will be followed by an interactive discussion between the moderators and presenters and participants of the webinar.
