Stroke prognosis is intimately related to reperfusion. Reperfusion in acute setting can be achieved with different strategies - varying from intravenous rtPA from mechanical thrombectomy. Recently, interventional approaches have been gaining attention and playing an increasing role in stroke care. However, no solid scientifical data is available to date. The investigators want do conduct a pilot trial to test if the use of the Penumbra™ System can improve clinical outcomes in a specific stroke setting.

The primary hypothesis being tested in this trial is that ischaemic stroke patients selected with significant penumbral mismatch (measured by MRI criteria) at 3 - 9 hours post onset of str...
To determine whether the extent of the ischemic penumbra apparent on perfusion-diffusion MRI can be used to identify patients who would respond positively and safely to tissue plasminogen ...
Evaluation of ischemic stroke patients receiving tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) during air ambulance transfer
The purpose of this study is to determine which of 3 different doses of tenecteplase (TNK) is better for treating stroke patients and if TNK offers an advantage over currently available tr...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of delivering recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) and ultrasound to the site of the blood clot blocking blood flow to the b...
The risk of developing intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) after the administration of intravenous tissue plasminogen activator for acute ischemic stroke is well established in the general population. Howe...
It is estimated that 6.6%-9.3% of stroke patients have unruptured cerebral aneurysms. The safety of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (r-tPA) for stroke patients with these aneurysms is uncerta...
Emergency medical services are an important part of acute stroke management. We devised a prehospital stroke scale, the TOYOTA prehospital stroke scale for tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) intraven...
Mobile stroke units offer improved time to administration of thrombolytics for ischemic stroke patients. Acquisition of intravenous (IV) access, however, can be challenging in the pre-hospital environ...
Post stroke seizures are a complication that occur in 5-20% of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients, cause a reduction in quality of life and a greater burden on the health system. There is not enough...
An acylated inactive complex of streptokinase and human lysine-plasminogen. After injection, the acyl group is slowly hydrolyzed, producing an activator that converts plasminogen to plasmin, thereby initiating fibrinolysis. Its half-life is about 90 minutes compared to 5 minutes for TPA; (TISSUE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR); 16 minutes for UROKINASE-TYPE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR and 23 minutes for STREPTOKINASE. If treatment is initiated within 3 hours of onset of symptoms for acute myocardial infarction, the drug preserves myocardial tissue and left ventricular function and increases coronary artery patency. Bleeding complications are similar to other thrombolytic agents.
A proteolytic enzyme in the serine protease family found in many tissues which converts PLASMINOGEN to FIBRINOLYSIN. It has fibrin-binding activity and is immunologically different from UROKINASE-TYPE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR. The primary sequence, composed of 527 amino acids, is identical in both the naturally occurring and synthetic proteases.
An extracellular receptor specific for UROKINASE-TYPE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR. It is attached to the cell membrane via a GLYCOSYLPHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL LINKAGE and plays a role in the co-localization of urokinase-type plasminogen activator with PLASMINOGEN.
Member of the serpin family of proteins. It inhibits both the tissue-type and urokinase-type plasminogen activators.
A member of the serpin family of proteins. It inhibits both the tissue-type and urokinase-type plasminogen activators.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
