ANZSNR members in Sydney meetings

The recent Stroke Society of Australia ASM in Sydney featured guest input from a number of ANZSNR members including Geoff Parker, Peter Mitchell, Alan Coulthard and Tim Harrington. Tim took part in an entertaining debate on the role of mechanical thrombectomy in stroke treatment, successfully arguing against the motion that Neurointervention should not be used except in the setting of a clinical trial.

Mark Parsons, Stroke Neurologist from John Hunter Hospital, NSW, and a member of the Stroke Society of Australia ASM organising committee, then returned the favour by giving a guest lecture on Stroke Trials in a session on neurointervention at the joint AOCR/RANZCR meeting at Sydney Convention Centre.
