Association Between Net Water Uptake and Functional Outcome in Patients With Low ASPECT...
Neurology Broocks G, Meyer L et. al.

Nov 23rd, 2022 - The effect of mechanical thrombectomy (MT) on functional outcome in ischemic stroke patients with low ASPECTS is still uncertain. ASPECTS rating is based on the presence of ischemic hypoattenuation relative to normal, however the degree of hypoatt...

Emergent Management of Tandem Occlusions in Anterior Circulation Stroke: A Single-Centr...
World Neurosurgery; Yu M, Ma Y et. al.

Nov 18th, 2022 - For anterior circulation tandem occlusions (TOs), the optimal management strategy for extracranial carotid lesions is controversial. We aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of acute stenting (AS) with balloon angioplasty only (BA). Clinical d...

Association of intravenous thrombolysis and pre-interventional reperfusion: a post hoc ...
Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery; Mujanovic A, Eker O et. al.

Nov 18th, 2022 - A potential benefit of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) before mechanical thrombectomy (MT) is pre-interventional reperfusion. Currently, there are few data on the occurrence of pre-interventional reperfusion in patients randomized to IVT or no IVT ...

Predictive value of ischemia location on multimodal CT in thrombectomy-treated patients.
The Neuroradiology Journal; Aguirre C, Trillo S et. al.

Oct 26th, 2022 - Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) applied to CT-perfusion (CTP) and CT-angiography-source-images (CTA-SI) may improve outcome prediction in large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke if compared to non-contrast CT (NCCT) alone. Besides, isc...

An old thrombus may potentially identify patients at higher risk of poor outcome in ant...
Neuroradiology Lin J, Guan M et. al.

Oct 22nd, 2022 - To investigate thrombus age and its association with clinical and procedural parameters in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) due to anterior circulation occlusions. The thrombi of 107 consecutive AIS patients with occlusions in anterior ci...

EXtending the Time Window for Thrombolysis in Posterior Circulation Stroke Without Early CT Signs

Aug 17th, 2022 - Posterior circulation stroke accounts for 20-25% of all ischemic strokes, with an annual adjusted incidence of 18 per 100,000 person-years. Compared with anterior circulation stroke, posterior circulation stroke is less studied and has poor neurol...

Randomized Study of Bailout Intracranial Angioplasty for Unsuccessful Thrombectomy

Jul 26th, 2022 - The ANGEL-REBOOT is a multicentered, prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded end-point (PROBE) study. A total of approximately 348 patients within 8 hours of symptom onset of acute ischemic stroke (NIHSS:6-30) , who has the imaging evidence ...

Clinical and Radiological Evaluation of Patients With Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency in Assiut University Hospital

Sep 2nd, 2021 - Vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) is defined by inadequate blood flow through the posterior circulation of the brain, supplied by the 2 vertebral arteries that merge to form the basilar artery. Transient ischemic attacks in the vertebrobasilar s...

Endovascular Acute Stroke Intervention - Tandem OCclusion Trial

Aug 2nd, 2021 - EASI-TOC is a phase III multi-centre, prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded endpoint (PROBE) controlled trial (1:1 allocation). The trial will seek to determine if in patients undergoing acute intracranial thrombectomy for anterior circulat...

Bridging Thrombolysis Versus Direct Mechanical Thrombectomy in Acute Ischemic Stroke

May 24th, 2021 - Intravenous thrombolysis with recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (IV t-PA) has been the only proven therapy for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) for almost 20 years. Since December 2014 a new era in acute stroke treatment has begun: randomiz...

Vulnerable Carotid Plaque Linked to High Stroke Recurrence Rates

Jun 2nd, 2022 - Small but vulnerable carotid plaques appear to be a more important cause of stroke than previously thought, a new study suggests. Results of the Carotid Plaque Imaging in Acute Stroke (CAPIAS) study show that patients with complicated carotid arte...

New Rules for Pandemic CPR; HF-Cancer Link; Post-TAVR Infective Endocarditis Tx

Jan 25th, 2022 - In a guidance update, the American Heart Association (AHA) said healthcare providers should quickly don PPE before performing CPR on people with suspected COVID-19. (Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes) A small risk of carditis associ...
