I can't imagine a better way to celebrate our FIFTIETH episode than to discuss my favorite subject: large vessel disease. Although we only cover one aspect of this stroke mechanism--atherosclerosis--and technically many of these trials may be somewhat outdated, the matter discussed in this episode remains the most up-to-date in the field. Take a listen. BrainWaves podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used to guide medical decision-making in routine clinical practice.
