Lessons Learned and Implications for Systems of Care in the Stent Retrieval Era

Lessons Learned and Implications for Systems of Care in the Stent Retrieval Era - By Dr. Mayank Goyal - 2015

Dr. Michael Hill's Thoughts on Workflow in the Escape Trial

ESCAPE Trial Dr. Andrew Demchuk on The Importance of Teamwork

Dr. Bijoy Menon on Improved Stroke Imaging

Escape Trial and Acute Stroke Treatment Overview

Dr. Mayank Goyal is innovating hospitals two ways: through the introduction of the multiphase CT angiogram which produces reliable images that can be easily interpreted, and through the Brisk Recanalization Ischemic Stroke Kit which streamlines medical procedures.

The Calgary Stroke Program at the University of Calgary Cumming School of Medicine is led by Dr. Michael Hill and Dr. Andrew Demchuk.
It is an international leader in stroke research, training and care that consistently integrates clinical care and clinical research. There are 62,000 strokes annually in Canada with 300-400,000 stroke survivors dealing with its disabling consequences; it is the second leading cause of death globally. The need for new and better stroke treatment is enormous.

Door To Needle Time Improvement by Dr. Michael Hill - Stroke Neurologist

A team of Canadian scientists and clinicians, led by Dr. Michael Hill of the Calgary Stroke Program at Foothills Medical Centre and the University of Calgary's Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI), have demonstrated that a neuroprotectant drug, developed by Dr. Michael Tymianski at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre, located at the Toronto Western Hospital, protects the human brain against the damaging effects of stroke.

Treatment for Small Core and Anterior Circulation Proximal Occlusion with Emphasis on Minimizing CT to Recanalization Times (ESCAPE) trial was designed to test whether patients with acute ischemic stroke, who were selected on the basis of results of computed tomography (CT) and CT angiography (CTA), would benefit from rapid endovascular treatment involving contemporary endovascular techniques. Dr Hill discusses the trial results.

Learn more about the Heart and Stroke Foundation's 2015 Stroke Report, which discusses the critical first hours of a stroke, and the ESCAPE trial. Hear from Dr. Patrice Lindsay and Dr. Michael Hill.

Canadian researchers have completed an international randomized controlled trial showing that a clot retrieval procedure, known as endovascular treatment (ET), can dramatically improve patient outcomes after an acute ischemic stroke. The study, led by researchers at the University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI), shows a dramatic improvement in outcomes and a reduction in deaths from stroke. The results of this study were published in the February 11, 2015 online edition of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).

SIR-RFS Webinar: Changing acute stroke treatment: 

A journey The recent revolution in acute stroke therapy has mandated that hospitals offering catheter directed stroke therapy develop streamlined protocols for timely diagnosis and treatment. Come hear Dr. Mayank Goyal, professor at the University of Calgary and Director of Research, describe the protocols in place at the Calgary Stroke Program, including a discussion of the imaging modalities implemented in the hyperacute stroke setting in preparation for catheter directed intervention. The talk will also cover lessons learned from IMS-III and other recent trials, the necessity of rapid diagnosis / treatment, as well as future directions in the treatment of acute stroke.
