Study Summary

This trial is testing a new system for emergency treatment of strokes caused by a blockage in a large brain vessel. The system includes a device that suctions out the blockage. The study will compare how well this new system works compared to the standard of care. ThePenumbra System with Thunderbolt is a mechanical thrombectomy device that is used to treat cerebrovascular accidents. There is no placebo group in this clinical trial, as all patients will receive the device. The Penumbra System with Thunderbolt has previously been approved by the FDA for the treatment of a different condition.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
