ABOUT

Mission Thrombectomy is an outreach initiative aimed at increasing access to stroke care globally.

About Mission Thrombectomy

Mission Thrombectomy was founded in 2016 as a global initiative by the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN). Initiated by SVIN in 2016, Mission Thrombectomy is currently made up of 105 regional committees (RC) worldwide as of September 2023. The campaign's primary goal is to accelerate access to MT worldwide with public health intervention (PHI) tools by doubling access to thrombectomy treatment every two years in every country around the world.

This peer-network of volunteer committees is led by stroke and neurointerventional providers, public health officials, and other stakeholders in over 100 countries. Mission Thrombectomy is committed to speeding up the availability of stroke treatment and reducing death and disability from stroke globally.

Purpose

Mission Thrombectomy will work to increase stroke awareness and access to mechanical thrombectomy around the globe.

We will do this by:

  • Analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating solutions to region-specific barriers to stroke and mechanical thrombectomy access.
  • Identifying gaps via research and surveys to expand access to stroke and mechanical thrombectomy internationally.
  • Training and/or public health programs for mechanical thrombectomy and stroke care globally.
  • Promoting SVIN membership and initiatives through committee activities.

Path to Impact

In order to impact lives across the globe, Mission Thrombectomy focuses on four areas: Research & Advocacy, Education & Awareness, Public Awareness Campaigns, and Strategic Partnerships. 

Mission Thrombectomy is increasing awareness of stroke and access to mechanical thrombectomy around the world by:

  • Analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating solutions to region-specific barriers to stroke and mechanical thrombectomy access.
  • Identifying gaps via research and surveys to expand access to stroke and mechanical thrombectomy internationally.
  • Training and/or public health programs for mechanical thrombectomy and stroke care globally.
