We would like to recommend to your attention a Round-Table discussion that held place at last year’s WSC in Montreal, Canada.

This Round Table Discussion reviews strategies for secondary prevention strategies in ESUS and the implications of the recent RE-SPECT ESUS results for clinical practice.

Following completion of this activity, learners will be able to:

  • Describe RE-SPECT ESUS clinical trial results
  • Outline the benefits and risks of NOACs in ESUS
  • Discuss the implications of RE-SPECT ESUS for clinical practice
