From the President's Desk
Dr. Anand Alurkar
Dear Friend's and Colleagues,
It is with a great sense of responsibility that I take over as President of “Indian Stroke Association’, particularly at this exciting juncture at which Stroke therapeutics finds itself.
Recent years have seen a veritable explosion in the scope and indications of Acute Ischemic stroke management, both medical and Interventional. New drugs, new indications, new evidence, new hardware and new techniques promise to further bring down the mortality, morbidity and disability of Stroke patients. It will not be an exaggeration to say that Neurovascular Intervention is the thin end of the wedge which is making a difference in Stroke management, and I consider myself particularly fortunate to belong to this fraternity.KEEP READING
