OBJECTIVE To investigate whether angiographically defined occlusion type could predict of the etiology of acute intracranial large artery occlusion and the stentriever response. METHODS We reviewed consecutive patients with acute intracranial large artery occlusion who underwent endovascular treatment and examined their workups for embolic sources. Patient demographics, laboratory findings, hyperdense artery sign, and angiographic occlusion type (truncal-type or branching-site occlusion) were… CONTINUE READING
