National Investigational Trial for Emergency Stroke Care At CDH: One Illinois Hospital Tests New Device That May Reverse Brain Damage Up to 24 Hours After Stroke
Date:10/12/2009

WINFIELD, Ill., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Central DuPage Hospital (http://www.cdh.org) (CDH), in Winfield, Ill., is the only Illinois hospital that will participate in a national investigational trial to test the effectiveness of a device that might extend the traditional stroke treatment window from three hours to an unprecedented 24 hours.

CDH is one of only six hospitals in the U.S. making the research trial available to acute ischemic stroke patients. The investigational device is designed to bring oxygen to stroke-damaged areas of the brain in a very unconventional way. The Ischemic Stroke System (ISS), pioneered by Brainsgate (http://www.brainsgate.com/eng/page.php?id=39&instance_id=9), uses electrical stimulation of an implant placed in a small nervous center behind the nose, called the Spheno-Palatine Ganglion (SPG), to increase blood flow and bring needed oxygen to damaged areas of the brain. Typically, advanced treatment of an acute stroke requires using catheter-like tools in the tiny vessels of the brain.

"If it accomplishes what it is designed to, the Ischemic Stroke System could be a stroke treatment breakthrough," asserts Dr. Harish Shownkeen, principle investigator for this research trial, co-medical director of the Stroke and Neurovascular Program and section chief of the Neurosciences Institute at CDH. "The procedure is designed to help save brain tissue and to improve outcomes by augmenting the reversal of damage done to the brain during a stroke. Our participation in this investigational research trial will help determine if there is any benefit to the treatment."

The ImpACT-24 Multi-Center Trial Launches Oct. 16, 2009

The trial, called ImpACT-24 (Implant for Augmentation of CBF Trial in a 24 hour window), is a multi-center, multi-national study taking place
