Ferraz_Fausto

 
This paper compared a matched cohort of patients with mild clinical presentations (NIHSS ≤ 5) associated to ELVO, submitted to endovascular therapy versus medical management.

The analysis included NIHSS shift and 90 days outcome (mRs 0-2) and compared 30 patients in the interventional arm with 88 patients in the medical management group.
