Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Endovascular Acute Stroke Intervention - Tandem OCclusion Trial
Official Title  ICMJE A Multi-centre, Prospective, Randomized, Open-label, Blinded Endpoint (PROBE) Controlled Trial Comparing Cervical Internal Carotid Artery Stenting to no Stenting During Thrombectomy for Tandem Occlusion Stroke
Brief Summary

Patients with tandem occlusion or tandem lesion (TL), that is, stroke with an acute intracranial anterior circulation occlusion and an ipsilateral cervical ICA (c-ICA) high-grade stenosis or occlusion, constitute about 25% of patients undergoing endovascular thrombectomy (EVT).

However, the optimal treatment of acute stroke patients with TL remains uncertain, as relatively few patients with TL were included in the major randomized controlled trials of EVT and management of the c-ICA was generally not specified by protocol nor analyzed post-hoc.

Recent large multi-centre retrospective cases series suggest that acutely stented patients may have more favorable outcomes than patients treated with angioplasty alone or those with no acute ICA intervention, but high quality randomized trial data are lacking.

EASI-TOC, a phase 3, academic multi-centre, controlled trial (PROBE design) with embedded pilot phase, will seek to determine if in patients undergoing acute intracranial thrombectomy for anterior circulation stroke with concurrent ipsilateral symptomatic high-grade (≥70%) atherosclerotic stenosis or occlusion of the extracranial ICA, endovascular ICA revascularization with stenting is superior to intracranial thrombectomy alone with regards to functional outcome at 90 days. Patients will be randomized to Acute stenting or No acute stenting (1:1 allocation).

Detailed Description

EASI-TOC is a phase III multi-centre, prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded endpoint (PROBE) controlled trial (1:1 allocation).

The trial will seek to determine if in patients undergoing acute intracranial thrombectomy for anterior circulation stroke with concurrent ipsilateral symptomatic high-grade (≥70%) atherosclerotic stenosis or occlusion of the extracranial ICA, endovascular ICA revascularization with stenting is superior to intracranial thrombectomy alone with regards to functional outcome at 90 days (measured using the Modified Rankin Scale).

EASI-TOC will be conducted at 8 high-volume comprehensive stroke centres in Canada with planned expansion to 10-12 Canadian sites within 2 years.

450 male and female adult (aged ≥ 18 years) patients will be enrolled.

Patients will be randomized (1:1) to undergo acute ICA stenting during the thrombectomy procedure (either before or after intracranial thrombectomy, at the discretion of the treating physician) or to intracranial thrombectomy alone without ICA stenting. Deferred ICA intervention is allowed, if indicated. Randomization will be centralized and web-based. Stratification will be performed for use or not of IV alteplase.

Patients will be treated acutely and followed up to one year.

Our primary hypothesis assumes a greater proportion of patients with 90-day mRS 0-2 in the stenting group versus the no stenting group (55% versus 40%). Assuming a minimal clinically important difference of 15 % between groups experiencing no crossover, a total of 173 patients per group would be sufficient to detect this difference, with a power of 80 % and a significance level of 5 %. Taking into account a cross-over rate of 10% (5% in either direction) and a loss to follow-up of 5 %, the total sample size will increase to 450 patients.

Primary analysis will be by Intention-to-treat. Pre-specified as-treated and sex-specific analyses will also be performed.

Informed consent will be obtained from patients or their surrogate. Deferral of consent will be allowed if permitted by local ethics committees.

Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
A multi-centre, prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded endpoint (PROBE) controlled trial (1:1 allocation).
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description:
Open-label, blinded endpoint (PROBE)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE
  • Stroke, Acute
  • Carotid Stenosis
  • Carotid Artery Diseases
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Device: Carotid artery stenting
    The type of stent should be one commonly used for ICA stenting. Balloon angioplasty before and/or after stent placement will be allowed as required. Stenting should be performed after intracranial thrombectomy unless specific technical circumstances suggest that access to the intracranial circulation requires anterograde stenting. Embolic protection devices should not be used routinely during ICA stent placement.
    Other Name: Stenting
  • Drug: Antiplatelet Agents
    The following antiplatelet regimen should be used: For patients having received IV thrombolysis, immediate post-procedural oral or intrarectal single antiplatelet agents, (Aspirin 325mg PO or 650mg PR). A second agent (usually Clopidogrel 300mg PO) is added after follow-up brain imaging at 12-24 hours confirms absence of significant ICH. For patients having not been treated with IV thrombolysis, dual antiplatelet therapy (Aspirin 325mg PO or 650mg PR and Clopidogrel 300-600mg PO) is given immediately post-procedure. Routine use of GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors, periprocedural IV Heparin is discouraged.
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Active Comparator: Acute Stenting
    All patients in this arm will receive standard of care with regards to intracranial thrombectomy and use of intravenous thrombolysis. In this arm, the cervical carotid artery stenosis will be revascularized with a stent during the acute thrombectomy procedure.
    Interventions:
    • Device: Carotid artery stenting
    • Drug: Antiplatelet Agents
  • No Intervention: No Acute Stenting
    All patients in this arm will receive standard of care with regards to intracranial thrombectomy and use of intravenous thrombolysis. In this arm, the cervical carotid artery stenosis will be not revascularized with a stent during the acute thrombectomy procedure.
