Abstract

Intra-arterial therapy of acute ischemic stroke has developed rapidly in recent years. Due to proven efficacy in randomized trials, stent retrievers were replacing first-generation thrombectomy devices and have been defined as method of choice. However, aspiration catheters or a combination of several techniques have shown promising rates of successful recanalizations. To create a basis for comparison of the new approaches according to real-world data, we determined the first pass recanalization rate of an evidence-based standard technique with the use of a stent retriever in combination with a balloon-guiding catheter. The assessment was based on the number of required passages and reperfusion rate, but not on clinical results. Patients from our institution with anterior circulation occlusions and mechanical thrombectomy by using stent retrievers in combination with balloon-guiding catheters were analyzed retrospectively. Reperfusion was graded with the "thrombolysis in cerebral infarction" (TICI) classification on post-interventional angiograms. Additionally, the number of passes and the duration of the recanalization procedure were recorded. Between 2014 and July 2017, 201 patients met the inclusion criteria. Successful recanalization, defined as a TICI scale 2b/3, was 91% (TICI 2b was achieved in 44% and TICI 3 in 47%) after the procedure. After the first passage, successful recanalization was achieved in 65% of the patients. Mean number of passes was 1.4 (1-5 passes) for all patients. Median duration of the procedure was 49 min (0:11-2:35 h). Even a standard thrombectomy technique with the use of a stent retriever together with a balloon-guiding catheter provides reasonable recanalization rates with only one passage. The results can be taken as benchmark for alternative and more complex techniques.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 May 2018.
All research outputs
#7,278,407
of 13,137,393 outputs
Outputs from CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology
#615
of 1,120 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#127,437
of 268,113 outputs
Outputs of similar age from CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology
#19
of 36 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,137,393 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,120 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,113 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 36 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
