The success of endovascular therapies depends on a number of factors including flow dynamics proximal and distal to the occlusion. The evaluation of antegrade flow distal to the occluded segment is currently a readily available, yet unexplored, option during stentriever-mediated thrombectomy. In this study, we retrospectively evaluated presence of contrast… CONTINUE READING
