Tilo Kölbel: The Stroke from Thoracic Endovascular Procedures (STEP) collaboration


Tilo Kölbel (University Heart Center Hamburg, Germany) talks about the findings of the STEP collaboration, and why endovascular procedure operators perhaps are “not the best people to examine neurological outcome” in their patients.

STEP is a multidisciplinary initiative which aims to reduce the risk of stroke during thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) by defining best practices, identifying stroke-prevention strategies and defining meaningful outcome measures.
