BACKGROUND Data on large vessel strokes are important for resource allocation and infrastructure development. OBJECTIVE To determine an annual incidence of large vessel occlusions (LVOs) and a thrombectomy eligible patient population. METHODS All patients with acute ischemic stroke discharged over 3 years from a tertiary-level hospital serving a large geographic area were evaluated for an LVO (M1, internal carotid artery terminus, basilar artery). The incidence of LVO was determined for the… CONTINUE READING
