WSC 2023 | Extracranial vertebral artery stenosis: subgroups who can benefit from stent placement

Extracranial vertebral artery stenosis (EVAS) is a significant predictor for ischemic stroke resulting in high rates of death and disability. Adnan Qureshi, MD, University of Missouri-Columbia, Columbia, MO, identifies subgroups of EVAS patients who show the greatest benefit from stent placement, a relatively low-risk but invasive procedure to reduce the risk of recurrent ischemic stroke. Dr Qureshi’s study found that patients with stroke as a qualifying event and those treated within 30 days of ischemic event benefited the most from stent placement. These findings should be used to inform patient selection for future wide-scale clinical trials, with aim to implement findings into healthcare systems. This interview took place at the World Stroke Congress (WSC) 2023 in Toronto, Canada.
