Hyperdense Middle Cerebral Artery Sign is Associated with Poor Recanalisation with Intra-Arterial Therapy


Background: The hyperdense middle cerebral artery sign [HMCAS]and hyperdense basilar sign [HBAS]are associated with poor outcome with thrombolysis [t-PA). Intra-arterial [IA]therapy is sometimes used in the management of acute anterior circulation strokes in addition to t-PA.
