  • ESOC 2018 What Is Optimum BP in Stroke Thrombectomy? Both low and high baseline systolic blood pressures are associated with an increased risk for poor outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke undergoing endovascular therapy, new results from a large registry study suggest.
  • Simple Imaging May Be Enough for Stroke Thrombectomy Selection Stroke patients selected for thrombectomy using simple noncontrast CT had a similar rate of good outcomes as those selected by the more sophisticated CT perfusion imaging, in a new study.
  • POINT: Success at Last for Dual Antiplatelet After Stroke, TIA A combination of clopidogrel plus aspirin reduced major ischemic events vs aspirin alone in patients with minor ischemic stroke or high-risk TIA in this long-awaited trial.
