Time to tPA: What the Guidelines Recommend
Guidelines for the Early Management of Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke 

 

  • The AHA/ASA Acute Stroke Guidelines made recommendations for the administration of alteplase based on the strength of a randomized clinical trial with specific inclusion/exclusion criteria and the populations of patients included in those trials (ECASS III criteria vs IST criteria).
  • The AHA/ASA supports their recommendation of the administration of alteplase in the 3-4.5 hour window, as the benefits outweigh the risks.

New Circulation Research
Compendium on Hypertension

The Editors of Circulation Research are pleased to announce a new Compendium on Hypertension, edited by Giuseppe Mancia.

In addition, upcoming issues of the journal will include Compendia on Peripheral Artery Disease, edited byJohn Cooke, and Sudden Cardiac Death, edited by Gordon Tomaselli.

Each Compendium is a collection of articles with a strong thematic focus on specific cardiovascular diseases or pathological conditions, discussing the major issues related to specific disease conditions, how these issues are being addressed in the laboratory and in the clinic, which important questions remain unanswered, and which pressing issues need urgent attention. The goal is to provide a state-of-the-art summary of both basic and clinical aspects of a disease. We view Compendia as a one-stop shop for basic, translational, and clinical investigators who wish to gather a comprehensive assessment of a problem. Accordingly, we hope that Compendia will provide a valuable resource not only to experts and investigators in the field, but also to nontraditional readers of the journal, such as physicians, cardiology fellows, residents, and medical students.

Acute Ischemic Stroke: Recent Evidence and Its Implications
Mayank Goyal, MD, FRCPC, Presenter

Wednesday, May 4, 2015
11:00 AM EST | 8:00 AM PST | 4:00 PM UTC

Webinar #23 Registration Homepage
  

Highlights:   

Acute ischemic stroke due to large vessel occlusion is a serious disease with very high morbidity and mortality. Recent randomized controlled trials (MR CLEAN, ESCAPE, EXTEND IA) have shown the benefit of endovascular treatment. There are other trials like SWIFT PRIME and REVASCAT, which have either been stopped or put on hold; these results are also likely to be available soon. This lecture will summarize the results of these trials, discuss its implications and key messages. In addition, there will be further discussion on future directions.

In this lecture, Dr. Goyal will discuss:

1. The results of recent endovascular trials.
2. The key differences between these trials.
3. Key results regarding patient selection, imaging and workflow.
4. Implications for acute stroke care.
5. Future directions.


Professional Education Center (AHA/PEC)

Looking for accredited stroke education?

Coming March 23, 2015, the Professional Education Center at learn.heart.org will offer several key sessions from the International Stroke Conference 2015 for credit.

Stay tuned for more details!


Additional Acute Ischemic Stroke Coverage from Stroke

In the spring of 2015, Stroke will be publishing a number of special reports that will explore the implications of recent positive endovascular trials on systems of care from international and multidisciplinary perspectives.
