Cooling Acute Ischemic Brain Damage - Safety and Feasibility Study "COOL AID I"

Completed

Phase N/A Results

Results

18 patients were randomized to hypothermia treatment, with 22 in a control group. Of those in the hypothermia group, 12 were successfully cooled. There was no difference in outcome among the two groups at 30 days. Upon MRI examination, infarct growth was slightly lower in the hypothermia group than in the control group (90.0% vs. 108.4%, p=0.71), however, this difference was not statistically significant.
