Specific Factors to Predict Large-Vessel Occlusion in Acute Stroke Patients


The effectiveness of thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke has been established, and earlier treatment produces better outcomes.

The purpose of this study was to determine factors that are specific to LVO and can be known before hospital arrival.
