Medical societies unite on patient-centered measures for nonsurgical stroke interventions
Date:1/29/2013

e of adult death and disability in the United States and the third leading cause of death in Canada, Europe and Japan.

The guidelines recommend submission of outcomes to a national registry that will allow research and also comparisons between facilities. Sacks noted that the benchmarks in the paper are intended to be used in a quality assurance program to assess and improve processes and outcomes in acute stroke revascularization, which is the opening of a blocked artery to the brain. He said that the guidelines may also be helpful to facilities that are interested in applying for accreditation as a comprehensive stroke center. "As the field of stroke revascularization evolves, the guidelines will be revised as needed," he added.

In 2003, the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology published a joint society document to guide the design and reporting of stroke research; the new guidelines address clinical care. The co-authors completed a review of the relevant literature from 1986 through February 2012 as the basis for creating performance metrics and thresholds. "All society representatives vigorously discussed each issue based on the literature review and personal experience," said Sacks.
