Clot length was associated with outcome after treatment with intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in patients with stroke secondary to emergent large vessel occlusions (ELVO) but data regarding the influence of clot length on outcome after thrombectomy is lacking.

We evaluated the composition of individual clots retrieved during intra-arterial thrombectomy in relation to recanalization success, stroke subtype, and the presence of clot signs on initial brain ima...
Predictors and impact of hemorrhagic transformation (HT) after thrombectomy remain to be elucidated.
The present Bayesian network meta-analysis aimed to compare the various strategies for acute ischemic stroke: direct endovascular thrombectomy within the thrombolysis window in patients with no contra...
Fibrin constitutes a major protein component of intravascular thrombi in all locations. Fibrin formation and its functions are essential for physiological hemostasis and the pathologic thrombosis. For...
To evaluate the effectiveness of micro-clamping stent-retriever thrombectomy (MSRT) in acute ischemic stroke patients with intracranial large vessel embolism (ILVE), and compare the same with conventi...
With mechanical thrombectomy now representing standard of care for treatment of acute ischemic stroke secondary to large vessel occlusion, identifying adjunctive techniques that result in ...
The BELTHROM trial investigates the efficacy and safety of the ClearLumen II Peripheral Thrombectomy System recanalization of acute and subacute thrombotic femoropopliteal occlusions (Acut...
This is a prospective open enrollment registry to evaluate arterial blood and thrombus removed during the standard thrombectomy procedure, which will then be used for the purposes of ident...
Available data from randomized trials on thrombectomy in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction have shown favourable trends on myocardial reperfusion. Better myocardial reperfus...
The recent validation of thrombectomy in addition to thrombolysis with intravenous administration of alteplase suggests a major revolution in the management of acute strokes. This treatmen...
Surgical removal of an obstructing clot or foreign material which has been transported from a distant vessel by the bloodstream. Removal of a clot at its original site is called THROMBECTOMY.
Surgical removal of an obstructing clot or foreign material from a blood vessel at the point of its formation. Removal of a clot arising from a distant site is called EMBOLECTOMY.
Retraction of a clot resulting from contraction of PLATELET pseudopods attached to FIBRIN strands. The retraction is dependent on the contractile protein thrombosthenin. Clot retraction is used as a measure of platelet function.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
Blockage of an artery due to passage of a clot (THROMBUS) from a systemic vein to a systemic artery without its passing through the lung which acts as a filter to remove blood clots from entering the arterial circulation. Paradoxical embolism occurs when there is a defect that allows a clot to cross directly from the right to the left side of the heart as in the cases of ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS or open FORAMEN OVALE. Once in the arterial circulation, a clot can travel to the brain, block an artery, and cause a STROKE.
