  • ESOC 2023 Intensive BP Reduction After Stroke Recanalization Harmful Intensive blood pressure management worsens outcomes and should not be pursued in stroke patients successfully recanalized with intra-arterial thrombectomy, results of the OPTIMAL-BP trial show.
  • ESOC 2023 Cardiopathy No Basis for Choosing Anticoagulation in ESUS Clinicians shouldn't expect apixaban to offer benefit over aspirin in patients with embolic stroke of undetermined source simply because they have atrial cardiopathy, ARCADIA investigators conclude.
  • ESOC 2023 No Added Benefit From Revascularization in Low-Risk CAS Optimized medical therapy may be enough in patients with carotid artery stenosis who have a low to intermediate stroke risk, after the ESCT-2 trial showed no benefit from adding revascularization.
