OBJECTIVE A study was undertaken to evaluate clinical and procedural factors associated with outcome and recanalization in endovascular stroke treatment (EVT) of basilar artery (BA) occlusion. METHODS ENDOSTROKE is an investigator-initiated multicenter registry for patients undergoing EVT. This analysis includes 148 consecutive patients with BA occlusion,(More)
INTRODUCTION The ENDOSTROKE registry aims to accompany the spreading use of endovascular stroke treatment (EVT) in academic and non-academic hospitals. This analysis focuses on preprocedural imaging, patient handling and referral, as well as on different treatment modalities in mechanical recanalization. METHODS Data for this study were from observational(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that pre-treatment Creactive protein (CRP) predicts outcome in stroke patients undergoing intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) treatment. METHODS We analyzed the data of 111 consecutive patients with IVT within 6 hours of stroke onset for stroke involving the middle cerebral artery territory and admission CRP < or = 6 mg/dl. (More)
We read with interest the article by Fries and Krishnan about equipoise, design bias and randomized controlled trials [1]. It is important to stress that equipoise is not the principle underlying company-driven clinical trials, which are doubtlessly necessary and useful for medical progress. As a rule, companies' clinical research departments cannot afford(More)
