Decreasing procedure times with a standardized approach to ELVO cases

Endovascular thrombectomy is now the standard of care for patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO) in the anterior circulation. Good patients selection and rapid treatment are the key points of good outcome. All new trials show the importance of pre-procedural standardization. Ryan McTaggart et al. proposed an intra-procedural standardization to reduce time from initial groin Read more about Decreasing procedure times with a standardized approach to ELVO cases[…]

Direct Mechanical Intervention Versus Combined Intravenous and Mechanical Intervention in Large Artery Anterior Circulation Stroke: A Matched-Pairs Analysis.

Anne Broeg-Morvay, Pasquale Mordasini, Corrado Bernasconi, Monika Bühlmann, Frauke Pult, Marcel Arnold, Gerhard Schroth, Simon Jung, Heinrich P. Mattle, Jan Gralla, Urs Fischer Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Five randomized controlled trials have consistently shown that mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in addition to best medical treatment (±intravenous tissue-type plasminogen activator) improves outcome after acute ischemic stroke in Read more about Direct Mechanical Intervention Versus Combined Intravenous and Mechanical Intervention in Large Artery Anterior Circulation Stroke: A Matched-Pairs Analysis.[…]
