“Stent assisted coiling of broad based intracranial aneurysms”

Biography

Wilhelm KuekerConsultant Neuroradiologist, The John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford

Senior Research Fellow, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford

I was appointed to a diagnostic and interventional position located at the historic Radcliffe Infirmary and relocated to the John Radcliffe Hospital Site in 2007. During this time I have worked varying job plans according to service needs. I was appointed to lead the development of imaging and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. During the first part of my tenure in Oxford I was involved in implementing modern MRI protocols for patients with minor stroke and TIA in collaboration with Prof Rothwell and his stroke prevention research group. In addition to the treatment of acute aneurysms I performed most of the diagnostic angiograms for stroke patients and I have been the sole operator for carotid and intracranial stenting for atherosclerotic conditions.

Owing to a changing work force and demand, my interventional commitment has increased over the years. I am now the principal interventional operator for the treatment of unruptured aneurysms with more than 50 procedures per year.

I have retained a strong diagnostic commitment covering regular MRI and CT lists with a focus on vascular work.

As a Senior Research Fellow of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience, I have taken on an increasing interest in neuro-immunological disorders. I provide clinical meetings for the local MS team and the NMO centre. I am participating in the research of these groups. I have authored or co-authored more than 150 publications.

I taught and otherwise participated in the MSc course for endovascular neurosurgery in the University Department of Surgical Sciences. The course director was Professor James Byrne.

 

Chair: Professor Freddie Hamdy
