Stent-retriever thrombectomy after intravenous t-PA vs. t-PA alone in stroke.
TLDR
In patients receiving intravenous t-PA for acute ischemic stroke, thrombectomy with the use of a stent retriever within 6 hours after onset improved functional outcomes at 90 days.
Guidelines for the prevention of stroke in patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack: a guideline for healthcare professionals from the american heart association/american stroke association.
TLDR
Evidence-based recommendations are included for the control of risk factors, interventional approaches for atherosclerotic disease, antithrombotic treatments for cardioembolism, and the use of antiplatelet agents for noncardioembolic stroke.
Guidelines for prevention of stroke in patients with ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack: a statement for healthcare professionals from the American Heart Association/American Stroke
TLDR
Evidence-based recommendations are included for the control of risk factors, interventional approaches for atherosclerotic disease, antithrombotic treatments for cardioembolism, and the use of antiplatelet agents for noncardioembolic stroke.
Thrombectomy for Stroke at 6 to 16 Hours with Selection by Perfusion Imaging
TLDR
Endovascular thrombectomy for ischemic stroke 6 to 16 hours after a patient was last known to be well plus standard medical therapy resulted in better functional outcomes than standard medical Therapy alone among patients with proximal middle‐cerebral‐artery or internal‐carotid‐arterY occlusion and a region of tissue that was ischeMIC but not yet infarcted.
Closure or medical therapy for cryptogenic stroke with patent foramen ovale.
TLDR
In patients with cryptogenic stroke or TIA who had a patent foramen ovale, closure with a device did not offer a greater benefit than medical therapy alone for the prevention of recurrent stroke orTIA.
Magnetic resonance imaging profiles predict clinical response to early reperfusion: the diffusion and perfusion imaging evaluation for understanding stroke evolution (DEFUSE) study.
TLDR
For stroke patients treated 3 to 6 hours after onset, baseline MRI findings can identify subgroups that are likely to benefit from reperfusion therapies and can potentially identify sub groups that are unlikely to benefit or may be harmed.
