Cervical Artery Dissection in Stroke Study | Clinical Trial - CADISS

Description:

The goal of the trial was to compare the relative effectiveness of antiplatelet therapy versus anticoagulation therapy in patients with extracranial carotid and vertebral artery dissection.

Contribution to the Literature: The CADISS trial suggests that there is no difference between the two strategies (antiplatelet vs. anticoagulation) in mitigating the risk of recurrent stroke at 3 months; the risk of recurrent stroke is also low.
