Based on the Plain/Non-contrast CT Head. The ASPECT Score can be used to assess early ischemic changes in acute stroke on any modern CT scanner without the need for additional processing steps making it easily applicable in many settings worldwide.

Imaging Based

Imaging Based

As the initial imaging modality to both screen for and establish the diagnosis of acute stroke, the ASPECT Score provides an opportunity to quantify the degree of ischemic changes in the brain parenchyma and serve as the basis for subsequent decision making.

    Worldwide anaesthesia use during endovascular treatment for medium vessel occlusion stroke

    CONCLUSIONS: Anaesthesia approaches in MeVO EVT vary across world regions and patient and physician factors. Most physicians in this survey preferred to start with local anaesthesia or conscious sedation and convert to GA if necessary.


    Endovascular Device Choice and Tools for Recanalization of Medium Vessel Occlusions: Insights From the MeVO FRONTIERS International Survey

    Background: Endovascular treatment (EVT) for stroke due to medium vessel occlusion (MeVO) can be technically challenging. Devices and tools are rapidly evolving. We aimed to gain insight into preferences and global perspectives on the usage of endovascular tools in treating MeVOs. Methods: We conducted an international survey with seven scenarios of patients presenting A3, M2/3, M3, M3/4, or P2/3 occlusions. Respondents were asked for their preferred first-line endovascular approach, and whether...


    Willingness to randomize primary medium vessel occlusions for endovascular treatment

    CONCLUSIONS: Most physicians in this survey were willing to randomize acute MeVO stroke patients irrespective of patient characteristics into a trial comparing EVT in addition to best medical management versus best medical management only, suggesting there is clinical equipoise.
