How has the role of surgery evolved with the development of endovascular techniques?
Originally trained as neurosurgeon, with twenty years’ experience in neurological interventions, Dr. Ricardo HANEL spoke with us at LINNC Paris 2021, offering his special perspective on the present and future of interventional neuroradiology and surgery.
Has the role of surgery diminished in aneurysms? When would surgery still be superior to endovascular techniques: in treating ruptured aneurysm? Does the size of the clot play a role choosing surgery? Could the age of the patient make a difference in which approach you use, for instance, why would surgery sometime be a better approach for the younger patient?
How are the new tools available today, such as mini-catheters and endosaccular devices, enlarging the frontiers of the endovascular approach?
What are the critical conditions in using dual antiplatelet therapy – and if it needs to be used, how quickly could you stop it? What role do endosaccular devices such as a WEB play in treatment, especially in relation to DAPT?
Can we have hybrid interventions? Are their situations, such as the carotid, where any approach – whether hybrid, surgical, or endovascular – might be correct? How would you choose which approach to use then? Can the decision-making be based on a team approach, including the patient, when all the tools and experience are available?
The future revolution in robotics? Engaging the patient in their own care? Dr. Hanel speaks to all these questions, so join us and learn why there might be more than “one right answer” …
