Philip M Bath | University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom

RESULTS: Neutral results: stroke recurrence was not lower; bleeding increased with intensive antiplatelet therapy.


Cilostazol Versus Aspirin in Ischemic Stroke Patients With Intracerebral Hemorrhage or Multiple Microbleeds
Sun U. Kwon Sr. | Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Republic of Korea

RESULTS: Stroke rates were less with cilostazol than aspirin, but more MI occurred with cilostazol.


Resumption of Oral Anticoagulation After Intracerebral Hemorrhage is Associated With Decreased Mortality and Favorable Functional Outcome
Alessandro Biffi | Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA

RESULTS: The favorable findings in both non-lobar and lobar ICH indicate a need for more randomized clinical trials.

Huaguang Zheng | Capital Medical University, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Beijing, China

RESULTS: Nimodipine was no better than placebo in preventing cognitive decline.



 

Second Generation Hydrogel-coated Coils for the Endovascular Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms: Final Results of a Randomized Controlled Trial
Christian Taschner | University Hospital Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany

RESULTS: Compared to standard platinum coils, there were fewer adverse events at 18 months with the hydrogel-coated coils.

Ticagrelor versus Aspirin in Acute Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack of Atherosclerotic Origin
Pierre Amarenco | Paris Diderot University, Paris, France

RESULTS: At 90 days, ticagrelor prevented more strokes, MIs, and deaths than aspirin in patients with acute stroke or transient ischemic attack of atherosclerotic origin.


Safety and Feasibility of Combination of Ticagrelor and Aspirin in Patients With Minor Stroke or TIA :Interim Analyses of the Platelet Reactivity in Acute Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (PRINCE) Trial
Yilong Wang | Capital Medical University, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Beijing, China

RESULTS: Adverse events led to more medication discontinuation in the ticagrelor arm compared to the clopidogrel arm.


Rapid Increase in Endovascular Thrombectomy for Acute Ischemic Stroke in the United States: Data From Get With the Guidelines-Stroke
Eric E Smith | University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada

RESULTS: Randomized controlled trial results and updated guidelines prompted more use of endovascular thrombectomy.


Interhospital Transfer Prior to Thrombectomy is Associated With Delayed Treatment and Worse Outcome in the STRATIS Registry
Michael T Froehler | Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN

RESULTS: Strategies to spot large vessel occlusion and use endovascular-capable centers may improve outcomes.

Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation (3CPR)

Benjamin S. Abella, MD, MPhil, FAHA

The American Heart Association's (AHA) strategic goal to reduce coronary heart disease, stroke and risk by 20 percent by the year 2020 has led to an emphasis on the importance of resuscitation and the chain of survival in AHA activities and use of resources. The Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation (3CPR) bench-to-bedside and community approach ranges from integrated cardiopulmonary physiology to issues of critical care, emergency cardiovascular care and CPR. Pulmonary hypertension and regulation of the pulmonary circulation have historically been areas of investigation for many of our council members. The council is keenly interested in promoting approaches that include clinical care, clinical research and basic science.

Council activities focus on developing research interests and careers of young investigators, writing scientific statements for the AHA, supporting scientific meetings and providing representation on various American Heart Association committees.
