SVIN 2019 Annual Meeting to Highlight Advances in Stroke Care Worldwide

The Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN) is committed to improving stroke prevention strategies as well as expanding access to the most impactful and modern acute stroke treatments to patients worldwide. Stroke and interventional neurologists who are members of SVIN continue to work collaboratively to achieve better outcomes for stroke patients.

In the past year, many important advances in stroke science have occurred that will have a tremendous impact throughout the United States and worldwide. The WEB-IT Study, lead by Semmes Murphey endovascular neurosurgeon Dr. Adam Arthur, of the Woven Endobridge (WEB) endovascular aneurysm embolization device was published and has lead to the application of this technology in the United States. This study demonstrated the superior safety and efficacy of the WEB compared to previous technologies for the treatment of wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. His study in addition to others presented at the Meeting will undoubtedly have an important impact on both improved patient outcomes and access to modern stroke therapies.

The SVIN 2019 Annual Meeting, taking place November 20-23 in Atlanta, GA, is a premier scientific forum for leaders in the field of stroke and neuro-interventional surgery. Semmes Murphey physician, Dr. Lucas Elijovich is the Chair of SVIN's 2019 Annual Meeting, and says,

"We are excited to have investigators like Dr. Arthur (and many others) representing five different continents at the Annual Meeting to share their expertise and science...bringing together a diverse multidisciplinary group is one of the many strengths of SVIN, and we believe it is of immense benefit to our patients."

Semmes Murphey is proud to have so many world-renowned physicians who lead the way in advancing the field of neuroscience.
