dc.description.abstract Purpose of Review The management of patients with acute stroke has been revolutionized in recent years with the advent of new effective treatments. In this rapidly evolving field, we provide an update on the management of acute stroke excluding thrombectomy, looking to recent, ongoing and future trials. Recent Findings Large definitive trials have provided insight into acute stroke care including broadening the therapeutic window for thrombolysis, alternatives to standard dose alteplase, the use of dual antiplatelet therapy early after minor ischemic stroke, and treating elevated blood pressure in intracerebral hemorrhage. Further ongoing and future trials are eagerly awaited in this ever-expanding area. Summary Although definitive trials have led to improvements in acute stroke care, there remains a need for further research to improve our understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms underlying different stroke types with the potential for treatments to be tailored to the individual.
