The New England Journal of MedicineTrial of Thrombectomy 6 to 24 Hours after Stroke Due to Basilar-Artery Occlusion

Over a 5-year period, patients who presented with basilar artery stroke between 6 to 24 hours after symptom onset were randomized to thrombectomy plus medical therapy or medical therapy alone. The thrombectomy group had a greater chance of survival and of achieving good functional status (using a modified Rankin scale) at 90 days, but suffered more procedural complications and cerebral hemorrhages.
