Thrombectomy improves neurological recovery after acute stroke

September 1, 2015

LONDON — Use of thrombectomy to retrieve larger thrombi improved neurological recovery at discharge in patients with acute ischemic stroke, according to a substudy of the MR CLEAN trial.

Anouchska Autar, PhD candidate at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and colleagues collected data on thrombi retrieved from 35 patients during the MR CLEAN trial to investigate the relationship between the macroscopic appearance of thrombi retrieved during intra-arterial therapy, cause of stroke and clinical outcome. They obtained thrombus measurements with image analysis software.
