BACKGROUND Clinical outcome after endovascular stroke therapy (EVT) for proximal anterior circulation stroke is often disappointing despite high recanalization rates. The ENDOSTROKE study aims to determine predictors of clinical outcome in patients undergoing EVT. Here we focus on the impact of age and recanalization on proximal middle cerebral artery(More)
The introduction of new direct oral anticoagulants has changed the treatment of nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. However, these changes are not yet fully reflected in current guidelines.This consensus statement, endorsed by six Austrian medical societies, provides guidance to current prophylactic approaches of thromboembolic events in nonvalvular atrial(More)
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)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We report the first case of 2 intravenous thrombolysis treatments within 90 hours in a patient with early recurrent stroke. SUMMARY OF REVIEW A 50-year-old man had improved significantly after intravenous thrombolysis for acute stroke. On the fourth day, he deteriorated dramatically because of recurrent stroke. Evidence of vessel(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)
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)
The concept of vascular dementia is undergoing revision. The multi-infarct model and the Alzheimer's model of dementia, usually referred to as 'multi-infarct dementia', are gradually being replaced by a much broader concept of vascular cognitive impairment. This conceptual evolution reflects a more profound understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms that(More)
Background The endovascular treatment of acute cerebral ischemia has been proven beneficial without major safety concerns. To date, the role of endovascular treatment in patients treated with oral anticoagulants, which may be associated with periprocedural intracranial bleeding, remains uncertain. Aims The objective of the current analysis is to evaluate(More)
