StrokeNet Thrombectomy Endovascular Platform (STEP)


STEP is a Randomized, Multifactorial, Adaptive Platform trial that seeks to optimize the care of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) due to large or medium vessel occlusions (LVOs and MVOs).  This Master Protocol describes trial procedures, data collection, data monitoring, follow-up visits, and safety procedures that will be employed in all Domain-Specific Appendices. 

STEP is a registry-based trial; it uses data from existing registries to record information for a subset of the trial Case Report Form (CRF). Additional registry data from non-randomized STEP patients may be used for trial screening, planning, and generalizability assessment purposes.
