NEWS CONFERENCE:

Late breaking stroke science

This session of stroke science highlights just-completed trials – three on stroke prevention and one on stroke rehabilitation.

  • The CSPS II trial is a multi-center, double-blind study that found the drug cilostazol was comparable to aspirin in preventing recurrent strokes, and patients taking cilostazol were less likely to develop brain bleeding.
  • A subanalysis of the RE-LY trial found that the anti-clotting drug dabigatran etexilate worked just as well as warfarin to prevent strokes, and caused less bleeding than warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation.
  • A rehabilitation study finds human- or robot-assisted therapy improved post-stroke arm movement better than usual care, even several years after a stroke.
  • The CREST trial stenting in the neck arteries and surgery to remove plaque buildup in neck arteries proved similar in overall long-term safety and efficacy, but showed differences in stroke and heart attack in the weeks following the procedure.
  • News conference video and a written summary are available at americanheart.mediaroom.com.
