10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. - Hall C

Head Position in Stroke Trial: An International Cluster Cross-over Randomized Trial
Craig S Anderson | George Institute of Global Health, Sydney NSW, Australia

RESULTS: Specific head positioning in acute stroke is of questionable value.


Aster Trial: Contact Aspiration versus Stent Retriever Front Line for Recanalisation in Acute Cerebral Infarction
Bertrand Lapergue | Foch Hospital and Versailles Saint Quentin en Yvelines University, Suresnes, France

RESULTS: Stent retriever and contact aspiration demonstrate similar safety and efficacy in acute cerebral infarction


Prospective, Multi-Center Study of Flow Diversion for Small and Medium-Sized Aneurysms: Results of the Premier Trial
Ricardo A Hanel | Baptist Neurological Institute, Jacksonville, FL

RESULTS: Flow diverter technology is safe and effective.

Featured Posters from Wednesday, Feb. 22

Late-Breaking Science Posters I
6:15 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. - Hall E

Association of Baseline ASPECTS and Collateral Score With Outcome Infarct Volume in Patients With Acute Ischemic Stroke due to Large Vessel Occlusions
Ivo G. Jansen | Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, Netherlands

RESULTS: Baseline ASPECTS and collateral status predicted the infarct volume but did not modify the treatment effect.


Influence of Balloon, Conventional, or Distal Catheters on Angiographic and Clinical Outcomes in the STRATIS Registry
Osama O Zaidat | St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Toledo, OH


Primary Outcome Results of the Systematic Evaluation of Patients Treated With Neurothrombectomy Devices for Acute Ischemic Stroke (STRATIS) Registry

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.

Late-Breaking Science Oral Abstracts I
1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. - Grand Ballroom B

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.


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.

Featured Science from Friday, Feb. 24

Closing Main Event
10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. - Hall C

Randomized Trial of Hemostatic Therapy for 'Spot Sign' Positive Intracerebral Hemorrhage: Primary Results From the SPOTLIGHT/STOP-IT Study Collaboration
David J. Gladstone | University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada

RESULTS: Emergency CT angiography has prognostic value in acute intracerebral hemorrhage, but treatment with rFVIIa did not improve outcomes.


Randomized Controlled Trial of Early versus Delayed Statin Therapy in Patients With Acute Ischemic Stroke
Shinichi Yoshimura | Hyogo College of Medicine, Nisinomiya City, Japan

RESULTS: Stroke disability was not reduced with early statin treatment for acute ischemic stroke.


A Randomized Double-Blind Pilot Study Assessing Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) During Rehabilitation for Improved Upper Limb Motor Function After Stroke
Jesse Dawson | University of Glasgow, Glasgow, United Kingdom

RESULTS: Vagus Nerve Stimulation is safe and feasible for stroke rehabilitation; arm function improved.
