Online Neurology Days | Day 3 - August 26, 2021, 19:00 (CET) / 13:00 (EST)

Stroke Treatment | Interventional Radiology

After days one and two, where we will uncover techniques to detect those at-risk, in follow-up, during day three, we will discuss the latest in diagnostic and treatment pathways.
Whilst thrombectomy has transformed acute stroke care, the key factor in treatment remains speed. How do you make the best decisions and perform intricate procedures under such time pressure? Our speakers will bring their clinical practice to life by sharing real life case studies whilst highlighting the benefits of using state of the art high-definition imaging systems.

  • Role of endovascular neuroradiology in the neurological and neurosurgery emergencies – Dr. Nevia Caputo
  • Higher Definition, Easier Procedure, Better Outcomes – Prof. Adnan Siddiqui
  • Live Q&A

Why should you attend?
  1. Experience the aspects of the endovascular procedures and pointing out how to manage difficulties in visualizing normal or pathological aspects.
  2. Get practical tips on stroke treatment from the clinical examples discussed to increase your diagnostic and treatment possibilities.


Moderator: Andrés González Mandly, MD
Interventional Neuroradiologist
Chief of the Department of Radiology
Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla
Santander, Spain

Background information: Born in Madrid, Graduated in Medicine in 1994 in the University of Cantabria School of Medicine. Residency in Radiology from 1996 to 2000 in The University Hospital Marqués deValdecilla. Subspecialized in Interventional Neuroradiology in the same hospital between 2001 and 2004. Since then, part of the Neurointervenctional team in this hospital. Currently (sin June 2020), Chief of the Department of Radiology. Still practising INR. With special interest in AVM, medullary intervention and Stroke.

Speaker: Dr. Nevia Caputo
Neuroradiologist,specialized in endovascular therapy
Director of Radiology
Azielda Sanitaria Locale (ASL)
Teramo, Italy

Particularly experienced in the treatment of intracranial arterovenous malformations, aneurysms and in the pre-surgical devascolarization of intracranial hypervascularized lesions, Dr. Nevia Caputo also has great experience in the field of CT and MRI. She took care of her training in these sectors attending the Lysholm Radiological Department of National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London and later attending the Lariboisière Hospital in Paris working with Professor J.J. Merland and Professor A.Casasco.
She has many years of extensive clinical experience with advanced and complex neuroendovascular procedures. The outcomes of the results she reported in many scientific papers and meetings.

Presentation title: Endovascular Therapy in neurological and neurosurgical emergencies

Dr. Nevia Caputo will show illustrative cases focusing on technical aspects of the endovascular procedures and pointing out how to manage difficulties in visualizing normal or pathological aspects.

Speaker: Prof. Adnan Siddiqui, MD, PhD


Professor and Vice Chairman in the Department of Neurosurgery (UBNS) at the State University of New York at Buffalo’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences

University at Buffalo, Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Department of Neurosurgery Buffalo New York, USA

Prof. Siddiqui completed fellowship training in Interventional Neuroradiology, Cerebrovascular Surgery and Neurocritical Care and has special interest and expertise in the performance of complementary microsurgical, radiosurgical and endovascular techniques for the comprehensive management of cerebrovascular conditions. He has special interests in endovascular management of acute ischemic stroke.
Prof. Siddiqui has over 450 peer reviewed publications and has continuously served on multiple scientific and educational committees.
He leads the Canon Stroke and Vascular Research Center (CSVRC) at University at Buffalo. This multi-disciplinary center with multiple concurrent major NIH grants, houses neurosurgeons, neuroscientists, physicists and biomedical engineers working collaboratively on cutting edge research focused on neurovascular biology and pathology including stroke and aneurysms, imaging, simulation and hemodynamics. In addition, he serves as the Director of the Neurosurgical Stroke Service at the Gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo, one of the busiest Comprehensive Stroke Services in New York State and the United States.

Presentation title: Higher Definition, Easier Procedure, Better Outcomes

Prof. Siddiqui will show the performance of endovascular techniques for the comprehensive management of acute ischemic stroke. By using a bi-plane interventional X-Ray system equipped with a high definition detector for best-in-class visualization of stents and guidewires. Resulting in more safe procedures and better outcomes for the patient.
