“This year, the debate topics are particularly exciting because they include novel management approaches (acute or preventive) that remain controversial in clinical practice due to lack of definitive data supporting their use over established practice,” said Tudor Jovin, MD, ISC 21 program vice chair.

“These debates highlight some of the nuances and unknowns we all experience when caring for stroke patients. Sometimes, there is more than one right approach,” said Program Chair Louise D. McCullough, MD, PhD.
