Current literature has only limited information on the natural history of acute ischemic stroke from large vessel occlusion in a stroke cohort who presents within 8 hours from symptom onset, particularly on 90 day functional outcome as defined by the mRS. Data from this trial will advance our knowledge on this important topic and may serve as a bench mark for future trials

This is a multi-center registry study. The investigators will include 10,000 patients with confirmed acute ischemic stroke in China. The aim of the study is to survey current treatment si...
The main objective of the PROOF trial is to investigate efficacy and safety of normobaric hyperoxygenation (NBHO) as a neuroprotective treatment in patients with acute ischemic stroke due ...
A Prospective, Randomized, Double-blinded Phase IIa(2) Clinical Trial to Investigate the Safety and Efficacy of Two Doses of SP-8203 in Patients With Ischemic Stroke Requiring rtPA (Recombinant Tissue Plasminogen Activator) Standard of Care.
The current study aims to evaluate the safety of SP-8203, designing in two stages (stage-1, stage-2) to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination therapy of SP-8203 and rtPA for ...
Phase 3, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Double-Blinded Trial of the Combined Lysis of Thrombus With Ultrasound and Systemic Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA) for Emergent Revascularization in Acute Ischemic Stroke
This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of transcranial ultrasound (US) as an adjunctive therapy to tissue plasminogen activato...
Ischemic stroke is accompanied by a three to four hundred percent increase in the brain's extracellular fluid (ECF) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentration of glutamate, which diffuses...
Elevations in systolic blood pressure (BP) greater than 140 mmHg are reported in the majority (75%) of patients with acute ischemic stroke and in 80% of patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhages ...
Cardiac troponin levels in the blood are an important biomarker of acute coronary events, but may also be elevated in the context of acute ischemic stroke without an obvious concurrent myocardial insu...
The review provides an overview of current endovascular management of patients with acute ischemic stroke in the light of recent landmark trials proving unequivocal benefit of the intervention.
Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) is the current standard of care for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with emergent large-vessel occlusions (ELVO). Successful reperfusion of ELVO is traditionally defi...
Platelets have a crucial role on vascular disease which are involved in pathogenesis of ischemic stroke. Platelet size is measured as mean platelet volume (MPV) and is a marker of platelet activity. P...
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.
A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

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 ...
