Giant intracranial aneurysms are a rare disease entity and treatment outcome seems to be dissatisfactory not matter if surgical, endovascular or conservative therapy is carried out. So far there has been little effort in developing standard treatment guidelines nor have there been sufficient multi-center data collections. We have therefore started a multicenter prospective observational study comprising 37 neurovascular centers throughout Germany to investigate how often giant intracranial aneurysms occur, whether they present ruptured or not and to document which therapeutic modes are being applied and monitor their outcome.

WAKE-UP (Efficacy and safety of MRI-based thrombolysis in wake-up stroke: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial) is a European collaborative research project launched by a consortium of academic and SME partners destined to improve the treatment of stroke patients. The core of WAKE-UP is an investigator-initiated randomized controlled trial of MRI based thrombolysis in patients waking up with stroke symptoms.
