TORONTO (PRWEB) August 24, 2020
Every minute matters after acute ischemic stroke (AIS) onset in the path to recovery. Early treatment is essential for both IV-Thrombolysis (IVT) and mechanical thrombectomy (MT). Recent research has explored extending the standard treatment window by using advanced imaging selection when administering IVT or MT. Many questions remain about whether IV thrombolysis or interventional mechanical thrombectomy is better suited for the treatment of AIS.
Join three thought leaders in the fields as they provide an overview of pharmacological and mechanical avenues to recanalization. They will discuss recently published trials, major advances in MT and IVT over the last five years, combination of IVT and MT, especially in patients transferred from other hospitals, and the potential utility of thrombectomy and treatment approach for distal occlusions.
From the standpoint of clinical trial operations, the speakers will also discuss thrombolytic treatment options as they relate to the infrastructure of stroke centers and their capacity, given that even many developed countries have been affected by a lack of critical care beds with the COVID-19 pandemic, and similarly may not be prepared to offer novel stroke treatments to all patients affected. Patient referral and recruitment is another topic of interest as researchers consider the pros and cons of broadening study eligibility by widening the time window for thrombolysis, which may make a difference for people in underserved regions of the world.
