Randomized assessment of rapid endovascular treatment of ischemic stroke.
BACKGROUND Among patients with a proximal vessel occlusion in the anterior circulation, 60 to 80% of patients die within 90 days after stroke onset or do not regain functional independence despiteExpand

Comparison of warfarin and aspirin for symptomatic intracranial arterial stenosis.
BACKGROUND Atherosclerotic intracranial arterial stenosis is an important cause of stroke. Warfarin is commonly used in preference to aspirin for this disorder, but these therapies have not beenExpand

Solitaire flow restoration device versus the Merci Retriever in patients with acute ischaemic stroke (SWIFT): a randomised, parallel-group, non-inferiority trial
BACKGROUND The Solitaire Flow Restoration Device is a novel, self-expanding stent retriever designed to yield rapid flow restoration in acute cerebral ischaemia. We compared the efficacy and safetyExpand

Predictors of Ischemic Stroke in the Territory of a Symptomatic Intracranial Arterial Stenosis
Background— Antithrombotic therapy for intracranial arterial stenosis was recently evaluated in the Warfarin versus Aspirin for Symptomatic Intracranial Disease (WASID) trial. A prespecified aim ofExpand

Endovascular Treatment of Tandem Extracranial/Intracranial Anterior Circulation Occlusions: Preliminary Single-Center Experience
Background and Purpose— Acute ischemic stroke due to tandem occlusions of the extracranial internal carotid artery and intracranial arteries has a poor natural history. We aimed to evaluate ourExpand
