OBJECTIVES Endovascular procedures are one of the important treatment options for steno-occlusive arteries in ischemic stroke patients. However, embolic complications after such procedures are always a concern. The authors investigated the association between serial change of residual platelet reactivity and silent embolic cerebral infarction (SECI) after endovascular treatment. METHODS Ischemic stroke patients undergoing stenting of intra- or extracranial arteries were recruited… CONTINUE READING
