Join TeleSpecialists TeleNeurologist Sam Saha, MD as he shares details about the latest clinical trials supporting imaging-guided thrombolysis and thrombectomy decision-making that have demonstrated net benefit in subsets of patients with unknown onset of symptoms, most commonly after waking up. With wider implementation of advanced imaging augmented by artificial intelligence software, there is an argument for pushing stroke treatment boundaries long established by clinical decision-making alone.

Intravenous thrombolytics is the mainstay of acute therapy in ischemic stroke.  While alteplase has been FDA-approved for this indication since the 1990s, Tenecteplase has recently gained traction for usage in acute ischemic stroke treatment as well.  This lecture summarizes the existing evidence and practical considerations for use of Tenecteplase in stroke therapy.

Seizure medications have greatly increased in number over the past decade.  This lecture will go over the new categories of medications, the best application of each one, and limitations of use including monitoring parameters.  Both emergent, inpatient, and outpatient topics will be covered to allow for better prescribing practices as most medications started in one setting tend to affect the other two settings.

Join TeleSpecialists Dr. Theresa Sevilis, board certified vascular neurologist to review the American Heart Association Guidelines for the Early Management of Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke.  Dr. Sevilis will discuss the indications, relative contraindications, and absolute contraindications for thrombolytics, provide cases for review, and discuss how to use the Guidelines in the decision making process.  She will highlight the most commonly asked questions surrounding thrombolytic administration and discuss the new utilization of tenecteplase in place of alteplase.

Acute ischemic stroke is a condition that requires timely recognition to initiate optimal acute stroke therapies, reducing morbidity and mortality.  Posterior circulation strokes, in particular, can be difficult to recognize and are commonly misdiagnosed in the emergency setting.  Join TeleSpecialists' Dr. Benzion Blech, board certified neurologist with a fellowship in Vascular Neurology, to review the mechanisms, signs and symptoms, and management options for posterior circulation strokes.
