Abstract: The Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF) attempted to harmonize the guidelines of different medical societies regarding treatment of ischemic stroke. Due to personal problems the DEGAM emphasized some critical comments late in the guideline development process of the DGN guideline „secondary prevention of ischemic stroke und transient ischemic attack“. The DGN decided not to consult DEGAM any more for this guideline. Thereby the DGN guideline looses its validity for family practice.
