We aimed to assess how evidence-based stroke care changed over the two waves of the COVID-19 pandemic. We analyzed acute stroke patients admitted to a tertiary care hospital in Germany during the first (2 March 2020-9 June 2020) and second (23 September 2020-31 December 2020, 100 days each) infection waves. Stroke care performance indicators were compared among waves. A 25.2% decline of acute stroke admissions was noted during the second (n = 249) compared with the first (n = 333) wave of the pa...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Hypothermia may be neuroprotective in acute ischemic stroke. Patients with anterior circulation large vessel occlusion (acLVO) are frequently hypothermic after endovascular therapy (EVT). We sought to determine whether this inadvertent hypothermia is associated with improved outcome. METHODS We extracted data of consecutive patients (01/2016-05/2019) who received EVT for acLVO from our prospective EVT register of all patients screened for EVT at our tertiary stroke center....

Abstract Background The effectiveness of endovascular therapy in patients with stroke caused by basilar-artery occlusion has not been well studied. Methods We randomly assigned patients within 6 ho...

Purpose We sought to determine the diagnostic agreement between the revised ultrasonography approach by the German Society of Ultrasound in Medicine (DEGUM) and the established Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU) consensus criteria for the grading of carotid artery disease. Materials and methods Post-hoc analysis of a prospective multicenter study, in which patients underwent ultrasonography and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) of carotid arteries for validation of the DEGUM approac...

BACKGROUND Since the publication of the large randomized controlled thrombectomy trials, endovascular treatment (EVT) has become the standard of care for acute stroke patients with anterior circulation large vessel occlusion (acLVO); however, the treatment of patients with an intracranial occlusion in the posterior circulation and in particular of the basilar artery has not been proven. Thus, there is uncertainty regarding the indications for EVT due to the poor evidence situation. OBJECTIVE Thi...

Background: We hypothesized that auto-titrating bilevel positive airway pressure (auto-BPAP) favorably affects short-term clinical outcomes in hyperacute ischemic stroke. Methods: In a multicenter, randomized, controlled trial patients with large vessel steno-occlusive stroke and clinically suspected sleep apnea were allocated to auto-BPAP or standard stroke care alone. Auto-BPAP was initiated within 24 hours from stroke onset and performed over 48 hours during diurnal and nocturnal sleep. Sleep...

Objective: To investigate the efficacy of tenecteplase (TNK), a genetically modified variant of alteplase with greater fibrin specificity and longer half-life than alteplase, prior to endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) in patients with basilar artery occlusion (BAO). Methods: To determine whether tenecteplase is associated with better reperfusion rates than alteplase prior to EVT in BAO, clinical and procedural data of consecutive BAO patients from the Basilar Artery Treatment and MANagement (BATMA...

BACKGROUND To assess whether thrombus surface morphology has an impact on first pass reperfusion in contact aspiration (CA) and stent retriever (SR) thrombectomy. METHODS From January 2016 to December 2018, consecutive stroke patients with an occlusion of the middle cerebral artery and thrombectomy (CA or SR) were examined in this retrospective study. We assessed patients' characteristics, procedural data and clinical outcome. Thrombus surface on pretreatment digital subtraction angiography (DSA...
