Abstract W P26: Meta-analysis Of Studies Using Solitaire And Trevo Pro Stent Retriever Devices For Mechanical Thromboembolectomy In Acute Cerebral Ischemia
Objective: To report rates of recanalization and symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (SICH) after mechanical thromboembolectomy using Solitaire and Trevo Pro devices in acute cerebral ischemia using meta-analysis of published studies.
Methods: We identified all studies that used Solitaire or Trevo devices for mechanical thromboembolectomy in treatment of acute cerebral ischemia using a search on PubMed and Cochrane libraries, stroke trials database, proceedings of neurology and neurosurgery related conferences, and supplemented by a review of bibliographies of selected publications. Recanalization was assessed using TICI >2a and rates of SICH were recorded. For the meta-analysis, forest plots and statistical analysis including event rates [ER] with 95% confidence intervals [CI] based on both fixed and random models were performed using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis Software. The presence of publication bias was interrogated by funnel plot of Standard Error by log odds ratio.
Results: Eighteen studies with Solitaire device and five with Trevo device were identified and included in the meta-analysis. There were a total of 433/505 (85%, ER 0.85 [CI] 0.80-0.88, P<0.001) successful recanalizations with Solitaire device whereas 196/243 (80%, ER 0.80 [CI] 0.74-0.85, P<0.001) successful recanalizations were noted with Trevo device. The incidence of SICH was 45/505 (9%, ER 0.09 [CI] 0.06-0.14, P<0.001) with Solitaire device and 17/243 (6%, ER 0.06 [CI] 0.049-0129, P<0.001) with Trevo device after mechanical thrombectomy. There was no publication bias.
Conclusions: Meta-analysis of studies reveals similar rates for recanalization and SICH after mechanical thromboembolectomy using Solitaire or Trevo Pro devices.
