During my vascular neurology fellowship, I found myself frequently unable to remember the details of landmark trials and having to go back and re-read them. This was inefficient, so I started writing them down. After summarizing and analyzing a few dozen articles, I figured why not share them with other learners? In 2014 I released the first version of the stroke trials app and have been building upon it since. I hope it helps you in your training as it did with mine.

Find key points in landmark studies fast. Each trial summary highlights the results, limitations, and "the bottom line".

View trials alphabetically or chronologically. Narrow results using filters and use multiple filters simultaneously.

Share citations or full PDFs from one place without having to search PubMed.

Succinct and informative

I am a PGY2 neuro resident and this app has been an invaluable resource thus far. Great layout. Love the search function. Summaries are easy to read and allow for quick retention of important points. This is a must-have for ALL neuro residents in my mind.

Phenomenal resource

I am a PGY-1 neuro resident and this app is a wonderful resource! I couldn’t find anything like this online anywhere. Not only are all the clinical trials from 1991 laid out here but they’re summarized AND there are links to PDFs of the original publications. Worth every penny!

Must have for all neurologists and those caring for stroke patients

Great ongoing collection of high impact stroke articles with accurate and informed key points. I use the app nearly daily, and recommend it to all my residents and interested medical students.
