Recent Medicare data demonstrate that increased use of IV thrombolysis and endovascular thrombectomy is reducing 30-day and one-year mortality. They also underscore the need for far broader use of these reperfusion therapies.
One of the first episodes of our “Neuro Pathways” podcast features interventional neurologist Shazam Hussain, MD, on the latest in mechanical thrombectomy and other developments in stroke care.
A population already at high risk of stroke has seen significant increases in the prevalence of almost all risk factors since 2000, a registry study shows. The findings are a clarion call for clinicians.
Whether a patient had an ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage or subarachnoid hemorrhage, their post-event health domains are likely to be affected to a similar degree, a recent study finds.

One of the largest studies of routinely collected patient-reported outcomes after stroke suggests that executive function and patients’ social participation need more clinical attention.
A study on Cleveland Clinic’s mobile stroke unit reveals one characteristic that seems to particularly drive early IV thrombolysis delivery.
A Cleveland Clinic study presented at the 2018 International Stroke Conference suggests these units may help bypass interhospital transfers for patients requiring thrombectomy.
Something’s going right in acute stroke therapy: Medicare data show that one-year mortality fell 18 percent from 2009 to 2013 in tandem with a 60 percent rise in IV tPA use.
High-resolution vessel wall imaging is a radiation-free means of delineating blood vessel walls. This image-rich post profiles how it’s applied to characterize and tailor treatment for a range of pediatric stroke types.
Initial experience with one of the nation’s first mobile stroke treatment units shows significant reductions in time to imaging and tPA use for ischemic stroke patients.
