RESTART Trial – Journal club

NANSIG’s 2nd journal club with Professor Rustam Al-Shahi Salman: Antiplatelet therapy after stroke due to intracerebral haemorrhage, the RESTART trial.

Time: April 30th 2020, 6pm

For NANSIG’s 2nd virtual journal club we’re delighted to be hosting Professor Rustam Al-Shahi Salman, the lead investigator for the RESTART trial. The RESTART trial was a randomized study which demonstrated that antiplatelet therapy following haemorrhagic stroke does not significantly increase the risk of recurrent intracerebral haemorrhage. This trial has had a significant impact on clinical practice and we are looking forward to hearing more about this work from Professor Salman.

The format will consist of a ~15/20 min presentation followed by a 15 min Q&A session.
