Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of the NeuroFlo™ catheter for use in patients with ischemic stroke. The NeuroFlo device is intended to increase blood flow to the brain and potentially reduce the damage caused by stroke.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cerebrovascular Accident Device: NeuroFlo™ catheter Other: Control Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The study is a prospective, controlled, randomized, single-blind, multi-center study of NeuroFlo treatment plus standard medical management versus standard medical management alone. Randomization will be 1:1 and stratified to ensure equivalent patient distribution between treatment and control for the following key parameters:

  1. National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) at baseline (stratify <10, 11-18)
  2. Time from symptom onset (TFSO) to time of baseline NIHSS evaluation (stratify <5 hrs, or ≥5 hrs).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Acute improvement in neurological function [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
  2. Stroke Impact Scale [ Time Frame: 30 & 90 days ]
  3. Hospital length of stay [ Time Frame: Varies ]
  4. Patient disposition upon discharge will be compared [ Time Frame: Varies ]
