News to Use

Results:

  • Did not show superiority or non-inferiority of direct endovascular treatment over IV alteplase followed by endovascular treatment
  • Similar hemorrhage rates with or without IV alteplase administration before endovascular treatment 

Translation:

  • We should still administer the IV alteplase even if the patient is going to the angio suite for thrombectomy for several good reasons. The anatomy can be challenging and delay getting to the clot; TICI IIb or greater recanalization is not guaranteed with thrombectomy; and the alteplase can begin to re-establish flow without significant increase in hemorrhage risk.
