Introduction : The grade of reperfusion after endovascular treatment of ischemic stroke e.g. mechanical thrombectomy is determined based on the mTICI score. The mTICI score shows significant interrater variability; it is usually biased towards better reperfusion results if selfassessed by the operator. We therefore developed a semiautomated image p...

Objective This clinical note describes a patient who presented with acute basilar artery occlusion and a persistent primitive proatlantal artery. Case Presentation We present the case of an 82‐year‐old woman who presented with sudden onset of left‐sided weakness. Cross‐sectional imaging revealed occlusion of the basilar artery with a persistent pr...

Purpose Reperfusion therapies for acute ischemic stroke due to large-vessel occlusion (AIS-LVO) are highly time-dependent, and large infarction is related to poor outcomes and risk of symptomatic hemorrhage. It is of significance to investigate and optimize the screening means and selection criteria for reperfusion therapies to identify more approp...

Background and purpose: Previous studies showed that acute reocclusion after endovascular therapy is related to residual stenosis. However, we observed that reperfusion status but not residual stenosis severity is related to acute reocclusion. This study aimed to assess which factor mention above is more likely to be associated with artery reocclu...

Purpose We aimed to investigate treatment effect of endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) on the change of National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) scores in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with anterior large vessel occlusion (LVO). Predictors of early neurological improvement (ENI) were assessed in those with successful reperfusion. Met...

Background A thrombus in the M1 segment of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) can occlude this main stem only or extend into the M1-M2 bifurcation. The occlusion pattern may affect endovascular treatment (EVT) success, as a bifurcated thrombus may be more prone to fragmentation during retrieval. Objective To investigate whether bifurcated thrombus p...
