Jan 26, 2018 NEWS & PRESS RELEASE - DEFUSE 3 - BRAIN SCAN GUIDED EMERGENCY STROKE TREATMENT

Advances in brain imaging can identify a greater number of stroke patients who can receive therapy later than previously believed, according to a new study co-led by researchers in NIH StrokeNet. The results of the "Endovascular Therapy Following Imaging Evaluation for the Ischemic Stroke (DEFUSE 3)” trial, presented at the International Stroke Conference 2018 in Los Angeles and published on Jan. 24 in the New England Journal of Medicine, demonstrated that physically removing brain clots up to 16 hours after symptom onset in selected patients led to improved outcomes compared to standard medical therapy.
