BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) lesion volume is associated with poor outcome after thrombolysis, and it is unclear whether endovascular therapies are beneficial for large DWI lesion. Our aim was to assess the impact of pretreatment DWI lesion volume on outcomes after endovascular therapy, with a special emphasis on patients with complete recanalization. METHODS We analyzed data collected between April 2007 and November 2011 in a prospective clinical registry. All… CONTINUE READING
