Summary Six randomized controlled studies of the effects of direct thrombectomy have been completed. We have a rare opportunity to ask specific questions using pooled data of the 6 studies. These questions include predictors of patient outcome using advanced machine learning techniques.
Six direct thrombectomy studies randomized acute stroke patients to either direct endovascular thrombectomy or bridging thrombectomy (with intravenous thrombolysis). The principal investigators of the 6 studies have agreed to pool individual patient data to provide a platform to answer pressing questions on clinical outcome predictors. This is a rare opportunity for a PhD candidate to participate and to gain experience in performing advanced statistical methods on a large patient level data set.
