Clinical Trial Summary

Cerebral haemorrhages following reperfusion treatments involve not only rupture of the blood-brain barrier, but also direct damage to vessels related to the equipment used and secondary toxicity to thrombolytics. The rupture of the blood-brain barrier which results from ischemia / reperfusion is responsible for stagnation of the contrast product on the exams performed after thrombectomy. It is difficult to distinguish hyperdensities related to the stagnation of contrast product and Hemorrhage on a conventional scanner. The reference imaging is the double energy scanner performed at the thrombectomy outlet. But no study directly compared the results of the flat panel with the cone beam CT performed in immediate post-thrombectomy. The investigators propose a direct comparison of the cone beam CT with the dual energy CT performed at the exit of thrombectomy.


Clinical Trial Description

Until December 2014, intravenous thrombolysis was the only reperfusion therapy proven to be effective within 4 hours of a cerebral infarction and several studies showed a clear functional benefit of thrombectomy in combination with thrombolysis in the first six hours of proximal arterial occlusion. Cerebral haemorrhages following reperfusion treatments involve not only rupture of the blood-brain barrier, but also direct damage to vessels related to the equipment used and secondary toxicity to thrombolytics. The rupture of the blood-brain barrier which results from ischemia / reperfusion is responsible for stagnation of the contrast product on the exams performed after thrombectomy, but it is difficult to distinguish hyperdensities related to the stagnation of contrast product and Hemorrhage on a conventional scanner. Several techniques are available to evaluate the hyperdensities post endovascular cerebral reperfusion including: the dual energy ct, the flat panel CT performed in the angiography room and the conventional scanner. The Cone beam CT is a relevant exam because it is performed in the angiography room and does not require transporting the patient who can be agitated or intubated until the scanner. The reference imaging is the double energy scanner performed at the thrombectomy outlet. Some studies have shown an excellent negative predictive value of the flat panel CT to eliminate haemorrhage in post-thrombectomy but no study directly compared the results of the flat panel with the CT performed in immediate post-thrombectomy and even less with the double energy scanner, it is therefore difficult to assert the sensitivity and exact specificity of this exam to detect and distinguish haemorrhage from contrast stagnation. The investigators propose a direct comparison of the cone beam CT with the dual energy CT performed at the exit of thrombectomy.

Method: consecutive patients presenting acute ischemic stroke candidates to thrombectomy will be enrolled in one hospital center. A cone beam Ct will be performed at the end of the procedure as well as a dual energy CT and finally a CT 24 h after the thrombectomy. Predictive factors of hemorrhage transformation such blood barrier disruption will be studied secondarily. ;
