BACKGROUND The Penumbra system is effective for recanalization of the primary arterial occlusion (PAO) in acute stroke. However, clinical outcomes are not as promising. The authors hypothesized that the formation of procedural distal emboli (PDE) during mechanical thrombectomy may lead to poorer patient outcomes. DESIGN/METHODS A retrospective review of(More)
Currently, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) has the highest mortality rate of all stroke subtypes (Counsell et al 1995; Qureshi et al 2005). Hematoma growth is a principal cause of early neurological deterioration. Prospective and retrospective studies indicate that up to 38% hematoma expansion is noted within three hours of ICH onset and that hematoma volume(More)
Carotid atherosclerosis is implicated in 20-30 % of strokes. However, the annual risk of stroke in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis is less than 5 %. Symptomatic carotid stenosis poses a greater risk for recurrent stroke with estimates as high as 15 % per year. This paper aims to raise awareness of populations at risk for carotid stenosis, the(More)
