SVIN 2017 Annual Meeting

Join us in celebrating SVIN's 10th Annual Meeting Anniversary!

Dear Colleagues,

The Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology is excited to invite you to our next Annual Meeting in Boston, November 8-11, 2017. This year is unique in that we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary year in Boston where our 1st Annual meeting was held.

On the first day, Dr. Thomas Devlin will chair our 5th Annual Stroke Center Workshop focusing on stroke systems of care and hospital infrastructure. National known clinicians and administrators will share critical lessons learned on a broad range of topics essential to quality stroke center operations. Topics will include new protocols and technologies for organizing pre-hospital care, secrets for optimizing your ED and interventional suite, stroke center certification from the experts, clinical research infrastructure and many more.  This workshop is intended to bring together hospital administrators, EMS providers, physicians, nurses, coordinators, technologists, and other stroke champions from primary and comprehensive stroke centers. Ample time for discussions and questions will assure a robust exchange of information and valuable learning for all.

Over the next three days, we are honored to bring in special international guest speakers, including Drs.Georges Rodesch, Michel Piotin, Jean Raymond, Thomas Leung, Marc Ribo, Greg Albers and Albert Yoo. We are as fortunate to have local Boston speakers including Drs. Louis Caplan, Lee Schwamm, MD,  David Thaler, Ajay Wakhloo, Darren Orbach, Ahmad Alomari, Carl Heilman, and Mark Fisher.  They will be covering a wide range of topics on imaging selection for large vessel occlusion stroke in early and late time windows, Neuroanatomy essentials for the stroke and neuronterventional practitioner, Vascular Neurology and Neurocritical Care Updates, Flow diversion for intracranial aneurysms, Brain AVM management, and Optimizing technical performance of stroke neurointervention.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 10th Annual SVIN Meeting in Boston, back to where it all began!
