The SWIFT PRIME1 study was a global, multicenter, two-arm, prospective, randomized, open, blinded-endpoint (PROBE) trial to compare the functional outcomes in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) subjects treated with either IV t-PA alone or IV t-PA in combination with the Solitaire™ revascularization device.
In patients receiving intravenous t-PA for acute ischemic stroke with confirmed large-vessel occlusions of the anterior circulation, treatment with the Solitaire™ stent thrombectomy device within 6 hours after symptom onset improved functional outcomes at 90 days.
The ESCAPE3 trial was an investigator-initiated, multi-center, prospective, randomized, open, blinded-endpoint (PROBE) trial designed to test whether patients with acute ischemic stroke, who were selected on the basis of results of CT and CTA, would benefit from rapid endovascular treatment involving contemporary endovascular techniques.
Patients were allocated 1:1 to endovascular treatment plus guideline-based care (intervention) vs. guideline-based care alone (control).
Among acute ischemic stroke patients with proximal vessel occlusion, small infarct core, and moderate-to-good collaterals, rapid endovascular treatment improved functional outcomes and reduced mortality.
REVASCAT4 was an investigator-initiated, multicenter, prospective, randomized, sequential, open,
It was conducted to determine the efficacy and safety of neurovascular thrombectomy with the Solitaire™ FR device in conjunction with medical therapy versus medical therapy alone, among eligible acute ischemic stroke patients treatable within 8 hours of symptom onset.
In patients with anterior circulation stroke treatable within 8 hours of symptom onset, stent retriever thrombectomy reduces post-stroke disability and increases the rate of functional independence.
MR CLEAN5 was a randomized trial of intra-arterial treatment (IAT) for acute stroke. In patients with acute ischemic stroke caused by proximal intracranial arterial occlusion, IAT is highly effective for emergent revascularization. Five
The MR CLEAN study observed that the addition of stent thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke care is safe and effective when administered within 6 hours of symptom onset.
