After the evolution in the last weeks in relation to the coronavirus COVID-19, the organization of the symposium announces the definitive cancellation of the 4th International Symposium on Mechanical Thrombectomy Acute Stroke (SYMTAS) scheduled for September 3-4, 2020. We regret all the inconveniences that this situation has generated and we hope to see you again in the next edition.


The 4th International Symposium on Mechanical Thrombectomy Acute Stroke (SYMTAS) will be held from 28-29 May 2020 in Santaigo de CompostelaSpain. SYMTAS is the successor of «International Symposium on Thrombectomy in Acute Ischemic Stroke», which was founded by José M Pumar and José A Castillo in 2017.

The symposia have provided opportunities to discuss the possibility of reperfusion therapy and encouraged investigators in many countries to design controlled clinical trials on the efficacy and safety of thrombolytic therapy. The contribution of the symposia is enormous in the development of reperfusion therapy for acute ischemic stroke. Now, Mechanical Thrombectomy therapy has become a standard therapy for acute stroke for ELVO, has been recently shown to be beneficial in randomized clinical trials and is now regarded as another strategy.

This two-day meeting will provide opportunities for stroke neurologists, neurosurgeons, interventionists, researchers, to meet and discuss both current and future issues related to reperfusion therapy and acute stroke treatment. We will share the update of the current trials and new data from the trials presented at the SYMTAS 2017, SYMTAS 2018 and SYMTAS 2019. We will also address many areas of interest linked to recanalization, including the critical care for such patients, complications, prevention of recurrence, novel devices designs, and relevant strategies. We encourage you to join us, for the meeting and to share your research and exchange views with your peers.
