This is a platform where we'll discuss the most controversial topics in stroke neurology. Experienced
professors will discuss the treatment options in the light of the recent developments about unclear issues in the literature. Usually both are right, but one is always a little more right. The right is determined by the audience by ELECTRONIC VOTING. Of course, it doesn't have to be the reality. The course is designed to provide clear answers to difficult questions.

The attendees will learn the clear and apparent answers to the 3 most complex current questions in stroke
neurology given by the specialists of the subject [Should we use TNK in stroke? Should we decompress the
