Desired Qualities of Endovascular Tools and Barriers to Treating Medium Vessel Occlusion MeVO : Insights from the MeVO-FRONTIERS International Survey

CONCLUSION: The majority of surveyed neurointerventionalists felt that dedicated MeVO EVT tools can be substantially improved upon. Different regions face various challenges in adoption of MeVO EVT, but overall, physicians are mostly awaiting better MeVO EVT tools.


Challenges and opportunities in research funding for neurovascular diseases from a clinical researcher's perspective

CONCLUSION: The gap between required and available funding was perceived to be a major problem in neurovascular research, with high competitiveness, time-consuming funding processes and excessive administrative requirements being the key obstacles to obtaining funding. Traditional funding agencies were perceived to be most capable of closing this funding gap.


Association of Stent-Retriever Characteristics in Establishing Successful Reperfusion During Mechanical Thrombectomy : Results from the ESCAPE-NA1 Trial

CONCLUSION: The presence of bypass effect and thrombus positioning within the proximal and middle third of the stent-retriever were strongly associated with successful reperfusion.


Interrater Agreement and Detection Accuracy for Medium-Vessel Occlusions Using Single-Phase and Multiphase CT Angiography

CONCLUSIONS: Interrater agreement for medium-vessel occlusions is moderate when using single-phase CTA and almost perfect with multiphase CTA. Detection accuracy is substantially higher with multiphase CTA compared with single-phase CTA, suggesting that multiphase CTA might be a valuable tool for assessment of medium-vessel occlusion stroke.


Influence of recent direct-to-EVT trials on practical decision-making for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke patients

CONCLUSION: In light of the recent direct-to-EVT trials, a sizeable proportion of stroke physicians appears to be rethinking IVT treatment strategies of EVT-eligible mothership patients with AIS due to LVO in specific situations.
