The WFITN sincerely regrets to announce that Professor Ronie Piske has passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.
Ronie was a long standing member, supporter of the WFITN and prior member of the executive committee.
He was one the first to train with Pierre Lasjaunias and has since been active in Hospital Beneficencia Portuguesa in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
He was one of the pioneers in South America, co founder of the South American Working Group in Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology (SAWITN).
Interventional Neuroradiology has lost an excellent physician and a gentle, thoughtful man. Our thoughts go to his family, in particular his wife Lia.
Ronie, rest in peace.
The WFITN Executive Committe
