EXTEND-IA TNK: Extending the time for thrombolysis in emergency neurological deficits - intra-arterial with tenecteplase


Lead PI: Dr Bruce Campbell

Status: Recruiting / Site Selection

 No. of Patients Currently Recruited: 53                                No. of Patients Required:  tbc

Rapid reperfusion is the key to improved ischemic stroke outcomes. Tenecteplase may be safer and more effective than alteplase. The hypothesis of the EXTEND-IA TNK randomised trial is that intravenous tenecteplase will achieve reperfusion prior to cerebral angiography more frequently than intravenous alteplase in patients eligible for clot retrieval.
