Qasim Bashir, MD (posted 4/3/2018)
A US trained Stroke & Interventional Neurologist elected as President of Pakistan Stroke Society.
Setting aside a prior tradition, Pakistan Society of Neurology elected/nominated a trained Stroke Neurologist to head the Pakistan Stroke Society. Stroke care in Pakistan especially Acute Stroke therapies to this day are not accessible to the public at large. Such a discrepancy in developing countries like Pakistan with population exceeding 190 million  is associated with existing poor socioeconomic conditions. With cost of thrombolytics, & thrombectomy devices beyond the reach of the general population, developing a robust stroke care system in the country appears a challenging task. After relocating my residence to Pakistan from USA in end 2012, I was able to introduce availability of iv tPA & neuroendovascular therapies within the city of Lahore. But much more needs to be done across the country. Pakistan Society of Neurology & its members have united to promote Acute Stroke Care across the country including public education and training young neurologists in the Vascular Neurology & Interventional Neurology.
