Nested Knowledge presents poster at the 2020 International Stroke Conference
PAUL, MN: February 19, 2020 – Nested Knowledge, a medical data analytics company that visualizes research data from primary studies in a dynamic and interactive format, presented its second research poster at the 2020 International Stroke Conference on February 19, 2020, at Atlanta, GA.
The focus of the poster is the largest ever systematic review and meta-analysis on the usage of balloon guide catheters (BGCs) on outcomes for acute ischemic stroke. Researchers used specific search terms in the PubMed database through the Nested Knowledge search/gathering interface to analyze the impact of using BGCs during thrombectomy treatments for stroke. In comparison with non-BGC based treatments, BGCs had a higher rate of successful recanalization with blood flow being restored to more than half of the previously blocked blood vessel (TICI 2b/3). These results also held true for using BGCs in combination with stent retrievers or with combinations of aspiration and stent retrievers. The rates of good neurological outcome (mRS 0-2) were also higher for BGCs, both alone and in combination with stent retrievers, in comparison with non-BGC based methods. Interestingly, contact aspiration had the highest chances for survival at 90 days, regardless of BGC use. The research was presented in association with Superior Medical Experts, a contract research company based in St. Paul.
