TENSION (Efficacy and safety of ThrombEctomy iN Stroke with extended leSION and extended time window) is a prospective, open label, blinded endpoint (PROBE), European two-arm, randomized, controlled, post-market study to compare the safety and effectiveness of endovascular thrombectomy as compared to best medical care alone in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke patients with extended stroke lesions defined by an Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) score of 3-5 and in an extended time window (up to 12 hours or unknown time of symptom onset). Up to 714 subjects will be randomized. Primary endpoint will be functional outcome assessed by the modified Rankin scale at 90 days post-stroke ("mRS shift analysis"). By this, TENSION will provide evidence of efficacy and safety of thrombectomy in an acute stroke population with uncertain benefit of endovascular stroke treatment.
This study is a prospective, open label, blinded endpoint (PROBE),European, two-arm, randomized, controlled, post-market study to compare the safety and effectiveness of endovascular thrombectomy as compared to best medical care alone in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) in patients with extended stroke lesions defined by an ASPECT score of 3-5 and in an extended time window (up to 12 hours, or unknown time of symptom onset). This is an adaptive design study, with prospectively stated interim analyses with specified stopping rules allowing for the possibility early termination based on either a determination of study success or futility.
Up to 714 subjects will be enrolled in the study and randomized for the Intention to treat analysis set. The randomization will be stratified by time from symptom onset (0-6h and 6-11h/wake up stroke), and stroke severity (NIHSS ≤18, NIHSS >18).
Interim data analysis is planned after the primary endpoint has been obtained for one third and two thirds of the patients. At each of these sample sizes, the available 90-day mRS data for each treatment arm will be evaluated. Safety interim analysis will be performed after one third and two thirds of the patients have been included.
Subjects who meet the inclusion criteria will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to one of the following two treatment arms:
Arm 1: best medical care Arm 2: endovascular thrombectomy and best medical care The primary objective of this study is to test efficacy and safety of thrombectomy in acute stroke patients with uncertain benefit of endovascular stroke treatment, i.e. extended ischemic lesion size with an ASPECT score of 3-5 or late (up to 12 hours) or unknown time window as compared to best medical care alone.
Approximately 40 sites in Up to 20 sites in 8-10 European countries Patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) based on focal occlusion in the M1 segment of the middle cerebral artery (MCA), and/or the intracranial segment of the distal internal carotid artery (ICA), determined by Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) or Computed Tomographic Angiography (CTA), and who meet all eligibility criteria will be considered for study enrollment.

Medical and skilled nursing services provided to patients who are not in an acute phase of an illness but who require a level of care higher than that provided in a long-term care setting. (JCAHO, Lexikon, 1994)
Organization of medical and nursing care according to the degree of illness and care requirements in the hospital. The elements are intensive care, intermediate care, self-care, long-term care, and organized home care.
Medical care provided after the regular practice schedule of the physicians. Usually it is designed to deliver 24-hour-a-day and 365-day-a-year patient care coverage for emergencies, triage, pediatric care, or hospice care.
An interval of care by a health care facility or provider for a specific medical problem or condition. It may be continuous or it may consist of a series of intervals marked by one or more brief separations from care, and can also identify the sequence of care (e.g., emergency, inpatient, outpatient), thus serving as one measure of health care provided.
A health care system which combines physicians, hospitals, and other medical services with a health plan to provide the complete spectrum of medical care for its customers. In a fully integrated system, the three key elements - physicians, hospital, and health plan membership - are in balance in terms of matching medical resources with the needs of purchasers and patients. (Coddington et al., Integrated Health Care: Reorganizing the Physician, Hospital and Health Plan Relationship, 1994, p7)
