E-cigarette Exposure Alters Brain Glucose Utilization and Stroke Outcome
Ali E. Sifat |Texas Tech University Health Science Center School of Pharmacy, Amarillo, TX

RESULTS: Vaping is not safer than smoking; stroke risk may be similar if not higher.


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.
