    Faster stroke treatment.
    Improve outcomes.

    When it comes to acute stroke, everyone deserves the best care. Today, more patients can benefit from mechanical thrombectomy through changed guidelines, which widen the time window for endovascular treatment1.

      Direct to Angio Suite – a one-stop stroke shop

      A one-stop stroke shop

      Today more patients can benefit from mechanical thrombectomy through changed guidelines which widen the time to window for endovascular treatment1. Direct To Angio Suite workflows allow for comprehensive stroke diagnoses to be performed directly in the neuro angio suite. This provides valuable, timesaving support for critical patients in acute need of mechanical thrombectomy therapy.

       

      At Philips, our goal is to help stroke centers shorten door to re-perfusion times for ischemic stroke by optimizing workflow and protocols, inspired by established STEMI re-perfusion treatment.2

      The Direct to Angio Suite workflow at a glance 

      Paris course 2019
      Time to reperfusion is fundamental in reducing morbidity and mortality in acute stroke4, 5, 6. In patients presenting directly to an endovascular-capable center, emphasis has now been placed on fast door-to-imaging times and fast imaging to groin access times. Watch the video to see how this works.

      Trends shaping the stroke market10


      Stroke care and treatment is a major challenge for healthcare providers across the globe. In many cases, particularly for patients who have experienced an acute stroke, ‘Time is Brain’ – meaning that the right treatment at the right time could potentially lead to enhanced patient outcomes.

      WE TRUST

      Why WE-TRUST in Direct to Angio?


      Philips has a depth of perspective across image guided therapy and the way we treat stroke patients’ clinical processes, and this expertise can help break the boundaries standing in the way of organizing stroke care around the patient. 

       

      Clinical studies: acquisition protocols, imaging quality and impact on workflow

      We are currently conducting clinical studies at a number of leading stroke sites to evaluate new acquisition protocols and assess imaging quality (artefact reduction and image reconstruction) of CBCT (Cone-Beam CT) scans in patients with neurovascular diseases, and assess impact on the workflow compared to the standard of care.11

       

      Multicenter randomized study: WE-TRUST

      In addition to these ongoing studies, Philips will evaluate the potential of these new solutions in the context of a Direct to Angio Suite (DTAS) workflow. A multicenter randomized study Workflow optimization to Reduce Time to endovascular Reperfusion for Ultra-fast Stroke Treatment
