Brief Summary:
Prospective, multi-center, randomized, controlled, open, blinded-endpoint trial with a sequential design. The randomization employs a 1:1 ratio of mechanical thrombectomy with stentriever and/or Thromboaspiration versus medical management alone. Randomization will be done under a minimization process using age, baseline NIHSS, use of IV tpa, vessel occlusion site and hospital. To evaluate the hypothesis that mechanical thrombectomy is superior to medical management alone in achieving more favorable outcomes in the distribution of the modified Rankin Scale scores at 90 days in subjects presenting with acute large vessel ischemic stroke <8 hours from symptom onset. Subjects are either ineligible for IV alteplase or have received IV alteplase therapy without recanalization. Sample size is projected to be 690 patients for a difference in treatment effect of 10%.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Stroke Ischemic Stroke Procedure: Thrombectomy Device: Stentriever Solitaire FR® or Penumbra System® Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Patients with acute ischemic stroke related to anterior circulation large vessel occlusion will be randomized up to 8 hours from symptoms onset in both arms (mechanical thrombectomy versus medical management alone). Subjects are either ineligible for IV alteplase or have received IV alteplase therapy without recanalization. They will be admitted at acute stroke units in Brazil (or ICU if needed) and treated following international guidelines. Concomitant medications and non-pharmacological therapies will be recorded. A maximum of six attempts to retrieve the thrombus in a single vessel can be made. No additional treatment will be allowed either with Intrarterial tPA, mechanical devices or angioplasty/stenting.

The primary endpoint will be distribution of the modified Rankin Scale scores at 90 days (shift analysis) as evaluated by two separate assessors who are blinded to treatment

Interim Analysis The sample size for this Phase III Trial is projected to be 690 subjects. For interim analyses, the method of Lan and DeMets will be used to allocate alpha via the power family method with φ (phi) equal to 1 for the assessment of efficacy and futility, respectively after the first 174, 346 and 518 patients enrolled have completed the 90-day follow-up. The interval may be more frequent if requested by the Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB). At interim analysis, in case the stopping boundaries are crossed the DSMB may recommend stopping the study either for better efficacy of the tested treatment either for futility. Other factors, such as safety, will be taken into consideration by the DSMB in the decision to stop the study. When considering stopping the trial for safety reasons, the DSMB will be instructed to consider both mortality (mRS=6) and severe dependency (mRS=5) at 3 months as one single outcome.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Distribution of the modified Rankin Scale scores (shift analysis) [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Distribution of the modified Rankin Scale scores at 90 days (shift analysis) as evaluated by two separate assessors who are blinded to treatment


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Functional independence (modified Rankin Score ≤ 2) [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Functional independence measured by modified Rankin Score ≤ 2 in 90 days in both groups

  2. Infarct Burden at 24 hours [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    ASPECTS change from baseline to 24 hours on CT or MRI

  3. Dramatic early favorable response [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    defined as an NIHSS score 0-2 or a NIHSS score decrease of ≥8 from baseline at 24 hours

  4. Cost effectiveness [ Time Frame: Life-time horizon perspective ]
    Cost effectiveness analysis of interventional therapy vs medical therapy alone

  5. Quality of life analysis [ Time Frame: 3 months, 6 months, 1 year ]
    Quality of life analysis as measured by EuroQol/EQ5D at 3 month, 6 months and one year, between interventional therapy vs medical therapy alone

  6. Vessel recanalization at 24 hours [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    Vessel recanalization evaluated by CT angiography (CTA) or MR angiography (MRA) at 24 hours in both treatment groups

  7. Successful recanalization at the end of procedure [ Time Frame: immediatelly after procedure (only thrombectomy arm) ]
    defined as a grade of 2b or 3 (indicating reperfusion of >50% of the affected territory) on the modified Thrombolysis in Cerebral Infarction (mTICI) scale

  8. Mortality [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Mortality at 90 days

  9. Symptomatic Intracranial hemorrhage [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    Clinically significant Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) rates at 24 (-2/+12) hours. All intracerebral hemorrhages will be classified by a central core-lab using the ECASS criteria for CT evaluation. Symptomatic ICH will be defined as per the SITS-MOST definition: deterioration in NIHSS score of ≥4 points within 24 hours from treatment and evidence of intraparenchymal hemorrhage type 2 in the 22 to 36 hours follow-up imaging scans. The incidence of any asymptomatic hemorrhage measured at 24 (-2/+12) hours will also be compared

  10. Procedure related complications [ Time Frame: During the procedure ]
    Complications occurring during the procedure will be evaluated: distal embolization in a new territory, arterial dissection, arterial perfuration, groin hematoma
