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.


Assessment of Discrepancies Between Follow-up Infarct Volume and 90-Day Outcomes Among Patients With Ischemic Stroke Who Received Endovascular Therapy

CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: In this study, discrepancies between functional outcome and post-EVT infarct volume were associated with differences in pretreatment factors, such as age and comorbidities, and posttreatment complications related to index stroke evolution, secondary prevention, and quality of stroke unit care. Besides preventing such complications, optimization of blood pressure, glucose levels, and hemoglobin levels are potentially modifiable factors meriting further study.
