  Neurointervention and stroke – final proof of concept in large randomised studies

Neurointervention refers to minimally invasive treatment for a range of cerebrovascular diseases including aneurysms, vascular malformations, and stroke.  In 2015 five randomised controlled trials showed that mechanical removal of the clot was superior to best medical therapy in treatment of patients with large vessel occlusive stroke. The magnitude of the treatment effect was astounding, and now Victoria is at the forefront of implementing systems of care to ensure access to this new therapy to as broad a cross section of the population as possible.

Prof. Mitchell trained at the University of Melbourne and the Royal Melbourne Hospital. After time in the US as a visiting Professor at UCSF, San Francisco, he returned to Melbourne as Consultant Radiologist at The RMH, where he now heads the Neurointervention Service. He introduced a range of new endovascular treatments, and is investigator on projects including an NHMRC funded randomised trial of vertebroplasty and carotid stent assisted angioplasty. He currently serves as President of the Australia and New Zealand Society of Neuroradiology.
