Late Breaking Clinical Trials

RATULS

Overall no direct effect of robot-assisted training, but ‘clinically important’ improvements in daily function

ASTER 2

Combined methods were no better than the standard approach to pulling out blood clots in acute stroke

PASTA

No increase in the rate or speed of thrombolysis, but may represent better-informed treatment decisions with subsequently reduced care costs

RESTART

Now clinicians can be reassured that antiplatelet drugs are safe after brain bleeds

RESCUE Brain

A neutral trial of remote ischaemic conditioning within 6 hours of stroke; however, ongoing trials will determine if the method is efficient in a different setting

Microbleeds International Collaborative Network

In TIA/stroke patients with many asymptomatic small bleeds on a brain scan, the risk of bleeding does not outweigh the risk of ischaemic stroke

Meta-analysis of  EXTEND, ECASS4, and EPITHET

We are now confident that clot-busters are beneficial up to 9 hours after stroke

TAKING CHARGE AFTER STROKE

Statistically significant improvements in quality of life, independence and activities of daily living with this low-cost self-management approach

INTERACT2 / ATACH-II IPD POOLING PROJECT

Outcomes in patients with a brain bleed continue to improve as blood pressure is lowered

THAWS

Early termination precludes definitive conclusions about the effectiveness of lower dose thrombolysis in patients who wake up with stroke selected by mismatch
