A Study of Survival and Outcome After Stroke "SOS"

Active, not recruiting

Phase 4 Results N/A

Trial Description

The objective of this study is to determine the natural history of acute ischemic stroke from large vessel thromboembolism in the brain. The target population is a stroke cohort with a known infarct volume who presents within 8 hours from symptom onset with a NIH Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score >10 who are eligible for mechanical thrombectomy but without receiving the treatment. Functional outcome as defined by the modified Rankin Scale (mRS) of all enrolled patients will be followed for 90 days after the index event.

Detailed Description

The objective of this observational study is to determine the natural history of acute ischemic stroke from large vessel thromboembolism in the brain. The target population is a stroke cohort with a known infarct volume who presents within 8 hours from symptom onset with a NIH Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score >10. Functional outcome as defined by the modified Rankin Scale (mRS) of all enrolled patients will be followed for 90 days after the index event. This is a prospective, single arm, multi-center trial. Up to 200 patients at up to 30 centers will be enrolled in the study. It is anticipated that up to 150 evaluable patients will be needed for analysis. The sample size estimate is based on the primary study functional outcome at 90 days as defined by a mRS of 0-2. Assuming that this observational study will have as outcome of 25% (37/150) mRS 0-2 at day 90, the expected two-sided exact binomial confidence interval is (18%, 32%). This sample size is adequate to estimate the mRS outcome of 0-2 at day 90 for the natural history of acute ischemic stroke.

Conditions

Trial Design

  • Observation: Cohort
  • Perspective: Prospective
  • Sampling: Probability Sample

Trial Population

Patients presenting with symptoms of acute ischemic stroke within 8 hours from symptom onset and with an imaging-defined large cerebral vessel occlusion and a known infarct volume will be enrolled and followed for 90-days.

Outcomes

Type Measure Time Frame Safety Issue
Primary Proportion of patients with a modified Rankin score of 2 or less 90 days after the procedure No
Secondary NIHSS score of 0-1 or a 10 or more points improvement Discharge No
Secondary All cause mortality 90 days post-procedure Yes
Secondary Incidents of symptomatic and asymptomatic intracranial hemorrhage 90 days post-procedure Yes
