Vascular Contributions to Cognitive Impairment and Dementia: A Statement for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
TLDR
This scientific statement provides an overview of the evidence on vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia and provides evidence that subcortical forms of VCI with white matter hyperintensities and small deep infarcts are common and risk markers for VCI are the same as traditional risk factors for stroke.

Safety and Efficacy of Mechanical Embolectomy in Acute Ischemic Stroke: Results of the MERCI Trial
TLDR
A novel endovascular embolectomy device can significantly restore vascular patency during acute ischemic stroke within 8 hours of stroke symptom onset and provides an alternative intervention for patients who are otherwise ineligible for thrombolytics. Expand
Mechanical Thrombectomy for Acute Ischemic Stroke: Final Results of the Multi MERCI Trial
TLDR
Higher rates of recanalization were associated with a newer generation thrombectomy device compared with first-generation devices, but these differences did not achieve statistical significance. Expand
