Study: Clot removal devices successful tools for acute ischemic stroke treatment
Date:8/26/2012

Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke, usually caused when a clot blocks an artery that supplies blood to the brain. Now the results of two multicenter studies published online in The Lancet on August 26 are giving physicians new innovative tools proven to better remove these clots that block blood flow.

The TREVO 2 clinical trial, (Thrombectomy Revascularization of Large Vessel Occlusions in Acute Ischemic Stroke) showed that the Trevo Retriever, a clot-removal device, performed significantly better at restoring blood supply to the brain than the FDA approved predecessor Merci Retriever. The study, conducted at 16 U.S. sites and one in Spain, was led by neurointerventionalist Raul Nogueira, MD, professor of neurology at Emory University School of Medicine.

Nogueira also served as a member of the steering committee for the SWIFT (Solitaire With the Intention For Thrombectomy) clinical trial, which tested the efficacy of the flow restoration device Solitaire compared to the Merci Retriever at 18 U.S. sites and one in France.

"The results of our studies show these next-generation devices (e.g. stent-retrievers) are superior at achieving restoration of blood flow to blocked arteries and were associated with better neurological outcomes as compared to the previously available technology," says Nogueira, who serves as director of the Neuroendovascular Division at the Marcus Stroke & Neuroscience Center at Grady Memorial Hospital.

"These devices truly refine treatment and represent another great stride in the evolution of stroke care. I'm excited about their potential and the opportunity to offer this cutting edge treatment option to patients at Grady and Emory."

Nogueira enrolled patients at the Marcus Stroke & Neuroscience Center at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. Located in the region known as the nation's stroke belt, Grady recruited the TREVO 2 study's largest number of patients, e
