BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although tandem internal carotid artery/middle cerebral artery (MCA; TIM) occlusion has been associated with low recanalization rate after IV tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), its independent contribution on stroke outcome remains unknown. Moreover, whether the relative resistance to thrombolysis in tandem lesions varies depending on the location of MCA clot remains uncertain. METHODS Two hundred and twenty-one consecutive stroke patients with an acute MCA occlusion… CONTINUE READING
