Optimizing stroke therapy - advanced brain imaging and rapid restoration of blood flow to the brain
Most strokes are caused by reduced blood flow due to a blocked blood vessel in the brain.
Recent advances in stroke therapy, including the EXTEND-IA randomized trial of minimally invasive endovascular treatment via angiogram to physically remove the causative thrombus (CIA Campbell, NEJM 2015), have potential to transform patient outcomes.
