  • International Controlled Study of Revascularization and Outcomes Following COVID-Positive Mechanical Thrombectomy

    julio 12, 2022
    International Controlled Study of Revascularization and Outcomes Following COVID-Positive Mechanical Thrombectomy Dmytriw, Adam A.; Kuhn, Anna L.; Puri, Ajit S.; Jabbour, Pascal BACKGROUND: Previous studies suggest that the mechanisms and outcomes in COVID-19-associated stroke differ from those with non-COVID-19 strokes, but there is limited comparative evidence focusing on these populations. Therefore, we aimed to determine i...
