The objective of this multicenter, retrospective chart review study is to compare selected outcomes (disability, complications and mortality) of patients with large vessel occlusion stroke presenting at late time window selected by either CT (Computed Tomography) only, advanced imaging with CTP (Computed Tomography Perfusion), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), or medical management.
Boston Medical Center (BMC) will serve as the main data coordinating site. Twelve additional sites will seek local IRB approval and execute data use agreements with BMC. The aggregated de-identified data will be analyzed comparing types of interventions and outcomes by type of imaging or medical management.

Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
A state of subnormal or depressed cardiac output at rest or during stress. It is a characteristic of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, including congenital, valvular, rheumatic, hypertensive, coronary, and cardiomyopathic. The serious form of low cardiac output is characterized by marked reduction in STROKE VOLUME, and systemic vasoconstriction resulting in cold, pale, and sometimes cyanotic extremities.
