Conference Reports

By Shazia Qureshi VIRTUAL -- June 21, 2021 -- In patients with post-stroke depression, treatment with vortioxetine appears to safely improve depression symptoms as well as cognitive measures, according to a small, non-randomised study presented at the Virtual 7th Congress of the European Academy...
By Eric Ramos VIRTUAL -- April 29, 2021 -- Patients with anaemia who undergo transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and receive periprocedural bivalirudin or unfractionated heparin do not appear to have higher rates of adverse cardiac events 30 days after the procedure, according to a study...
By Erika Powers VIRTUAL -- April 27, 2021 -- Elevated pre-procedural blood pressure variability during interhospital transport for endovascular thrombectomy is associated with lower odds of good functional outcome at 90 days, according to a study presented at the Virtual 2021 Annual Meeting of the...
By Nancy Melville YORK, Me -- March 24, 2021 -- Patients who receive stroke treatment in a mobile stroke unit are significantly more likely to receive potentially life-saving clot-buster treatment, to receive treatment within 1 hour of stroke onset, and to achieve a full recovery than those...
By Nancy Melville YORK, Me -- March 23, 2021 -- A novel, radially adjustable stent retriever, Tigertriever, is highly effective and safe in the removal of thrombus in patients with large-vessel occlusive strokes, with revascularisation success that is superior to other currently approved devices,...
By Nancy Melville YORK, Me -- March 23, 2021 -- Outcomes in the treatment of acute ischaemic stroke with endovascular thrombectomy appear similar with or without prior use of intravenous (IV) thrombolysis with alteplase, according to a study presented at the 2021 Virtual International Stroke...
By Nancy Melville YORK, Me -- March 23, 2021 -- DM199, the first recombinant formulation of human tissue kallikrein (KLK1), shows a favourable safety and tolerability profile in the treatment of ischaemic stroke, according to a study presented at the 2021 Virtual International Stroke Conference (...
By Nancy Melville YORK, Me -- March 23, 2021 -- The use of insertable cardiac monitors after ischaemic stroke detects atrial fibrillation at rates much higher than standard-of-care monitoring approaches, providing potentially critical information to prevent a recurrent stroke, according to a study...
By Nancy Melville YORK, Me -- March 18, 2021 -- Patterns of cerebral autoregulation in the brain, detected using diffuse correlation spectroscopy of low frequency oscillation, show potential as providing a much needed biomarker for cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), according to a study presented...
By Nancy Melville YORK, Me -- March 18, 2021 -- The blood pressure-lowering effects of intravenous (IV) nicardipine immediately following intracerebral haemorrhage are associated with significant functional outcomes, including death or disability, according to a study presented at the 2021 Virtual...
