SITS - Thrombectomy

Summary

This registry records the use of thrombectomy in the treatment of stroke.

SITS protocols are electronic forms that are automatically enabled in the registry depending on the chosen acute phase intervention. In this registry the following protocol is used:

Thrombectomy Protocol (TBYP) – protocol for registering stroke patients treated with thrombectomy.

In 2020: launching SITS thrombectomy-minimal protocol (TBYP-m)

The current SITS endovascular thrombectomy, TBY, registry, is a global academic registry enabling you to document treatment outcomes and benchmark your thrombectomy data with your country and the rest of the world. SITS thrombectomy standard protocol has shown to be a great success – its usage has increased for every year since its start in 2013.

Recently there has been an increasing interest in a minimal version of the TBY data entry protocol, as the treatment globally is getting established in more and more countries. SITS will launch a minimal version of TBY data entry protocol during 2020. The minimal protocol has fewer variables than the standard version.

SITS Thrombectomy Registry

Data based on all patient files entered between December 25, 2002 and December 31, 2019 using the SITS protocols for thrombectomy and bridging of thrombectomy with IV thrombolysis. Patient recruitment is calculated using files with both confirmed and unconfirmed data. Data collection using the thrombectomy protocols is ongoing and will be used in upcoming studies.
