BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Studies have established a relation between recanalization and improved clinical outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients; however, intra-arterial clot size has not been routinely assessed. The aim of the study was to determine the impact of intra-arterial thrombus burden on intra-arterial treatment (IAT) and clinical outcome. METHODS A retrospective review of our IAT stroke database included procedure time, recanalization, symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage, poor… CONTINUE READING
