President Message

President's Message

It is great pleasure to welcome you to the 5th Meeting of MENA-SINO, organized by the Middle East North Africa Stroke & interventional neurotherapy organizations; the most significant stroke and neurovascular event in Africa and the Middle East. Egyptian Neurointerventionalists and stroke specialists are honored to be affiliated to this respected society which had been founded in 2013, and Since that time, the MENA-SINO is playing an active role in the progress of Stroke and neurointerventional practice on local, regional, continental and international levels. 

We are truly fortune to have this meeting done in collaboration with the Cairo neurology society (CNS), Egyptian society of Stroke (ESS), Egyptian society of Neuroradiology (ESON) and Egyptian society of Neurological surgeons (ESNS). The scientific program is outstanding, with high standard courses, distinguished speakers from all over the world, and highly educational and fascinating presentations. 

I strongly believe that these sessions and courses will guide our young neurointerventionalists and stroke specialists, expanding their intellects, strengthening their technical skills, introducing them to a new era with a brighter future. Cairo had always been the melting point of different cultures, and will now offer the chance for all neurovascular specialists from different countries to get together. With great respect to our remarkable history extending among thousands of years, and historical places attracting people from all over the world, our city presents a modern surrounding with its educational institutes, developing infrastructure, national and international shopping possibilities. My best wishes to all our guests to have a pleasant stay in this beautiful historical city, and to all of you to have a memorable gathering and a successful great event.
