This symposium focused on emerging pathways for improving patient care in acute and cryptogenic stroke. Optimizing treatment of stroke complications was also discussed. The symposium provided insight into transfer and treatment patterns for acute stroke in Catalonia, Spain, as well as patient evaluation for mechanical thrombectomy. In addition, secondary stroke prevention strategies in the setting of cryptogenic stroke were examined. Topics included: an update on the RACECAT clinical trial, emerging diagnostic tools and care models in acute stroke, the role of long-term cardiac monitoring for cryptogenic stroke, and treatment plans for post-stroke spasticity.
