Episode 77: 30th Anniversary of the European Journal of Neurology
In this eanCast episode, Barbara Tettenborn interviews Didier Leys, Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Neurology, marking its 30th anniversary. Leys discusses the journal’s evolution, challenges, and current impact factor of five. He outlines his daily editorial duties, stressing manuscript selection, ethical standards, and team management. Future plans include webinars, a history special issue, a virtual issue of top-cited articles, and video interviews with editors. He also encourages young researchers to submit, citing impact factor and submission delay importance. The episode closes with a glimpse into some exciting 30th anniversary initiatives.
Episode 78: Advocating for Brain Health
Kick off 2024 with this special episode on brain health! Rolf Fronczek hosts Matilde Leonardi discussing her international neurology career and passion for brain health. She highlights the WHO Global Action Plan on epilepsy, stresses the increasing global burden of neurological diseases, and advocates for preventative measures. Leonardi details the EAN’s Brain Health Strategy, urging neurologists to advocate for brain health individually and nationally. Emphasising a bio-psychosocial approach, she invites participation in the EAN’s leadership and advocacy training to contribute to shaping global brain health.
Episode 79: Hidden Hazards: A Dive into Covert Cerebrovascular Disease
Thomas Meinel, a clinician scientist at the Burn Stroke Research Center in Switzerland, is hosted by Barbara Tettenborn as they discuss covert cerebrovascular disease. They explore his research, particularly on stroke in patients on anticoagulation, highlighting the frequency and clinical implications of covert cerebrovascular lesions. Meinel emphasises the current lack of clear evidence for managing these conditions. He also shares insights into ongoing studies that aim to connect epidemiological knowledge with clinical practices, encouraging neurologists to recognise and address covert cerebrovascular disease in patient care.
Episode 80: Rare Causes of Stroke
Benedetta Storti hosts Dr Arsovska as they explore rare causes of stroke, covering conditions like cardiomyopathy, fibromuscular dysplasia, and immune-related factors. They stress the significance of a comprehensive diagnostic approach, discussing specific features in tests and advocating for thorough investigations. The podcast addresses potential errors in diagnostic pathways and underscores the importance of biopsy in certain cases. Arsovska shares insights into tailored treatment options based on underlying conditions.
