The Medical Ethical Committee has given approval to start the trial!


On April 5, 6 and 7, the neurosurgeons were trained in the minimmaly invasive endoscopy-assisted procedure and the use of the Artemis neuro-evacuation device.


The DIST has been awarded the Veelbelovende Zorg (Promising Care) grant from the Zorginstituut Nederland and ZonMw. The awarded grant of 5 million euros enables us to extend the follow-up of all participants from 6 to 12 months, perform a cost-effectiveness and budget impact analysis, and to reimburse the costs of the procedure during the trial.
