Abstract

This short review focuses on recent practically relevant studies in stroke treatment and prevention and discusses their implications on clinical practice and future research, including 3 shortly published randomized controlled trials investigating interventional treatment in acute ischemic stroke (The Interventional Management of Stroke phase III trial [IMS III], Synthesis Expansion: A Randomized Controlled Trial on Intra-Arterial Versus Intravenous Thrombolysis in Acute Ischemic Stroke, and the Mechanical Retrieval and Recanalization of Stroke Clots Using Embolectomy [MR RESCUE]) and 1 large trial on secondary prevention in high-risk patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) or minor stroke (Randomized, Double-blind Trial Comparing the Effects of a 3-month Clopidogrel Regimen, Combined With ASA During the First 21 days, Versus ASA Alone for the Acute Treatment of TIA or Minor Stroke [CHANCE trial]).
