BASilar artery International Cooperation Study (BASICS) trial


Last Update: 13-02-2017


140 patients randomized!

Since the publication of the MR CLEAN trial the inclusion rate increased significantly (See the graph below).

In January the 6th interim analysis (109 patients with 3 months follow-up data available) was performed. The DSMB advised that the study should continue. Furthermore, the DSMB noted that the procedure under study (IAT plus best medical treatment) exhibits a reassuring safety profile.
