The aim of the study was to examine the effects of mechanical thrombectomy using the Solitaire stent in patients with thromboembolic occlusions of the intracranial carotid artery bifurcation (carotid T) or middle cerebral artery (MCA) and to compare the results with a historical cohort treated with local intraarterial thrombolysis using urokinase. The time intervals from stroke onset to treatment, recanalization rates, occlusion sites, recanalization times and functional outcomes on the… CONTINUE READING
