    • Does bridging therapy in mechanical thrombectomy increase recanalization rates in ischemic stroke patients affected by acute large vessel occlusion? 

      Silva Santos, Andreia M.; Rossi, Rosanna; Pandit, Abhay; Fitzgerald, Seán; Mereuta, Oana Madalina; Douglas, Andrew; Thornton, John; Brennan, Paul; Power, Sarah; O’Hare, Alan; Rentzos, Alexandros; Ceder, Erik; Tatlisumak, Turgut; Jood, Katarina; Redfors, Petra; Nordanstig, Annika; Duffy, Sharon; Gilvarry, Michael; McCarthy, Ray; Doyle, Karen M. (SAGE Publications, 2019-05-22)
      Both intravenous thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator (IV-rtPA) and mechanical thrombectomy (MT) increase recanalization rates. We assessed if bridging-therapy (the concomitant use of rtPA and MT) could increase ...
    • Orbit image analysis machine learning software can be used for the histological quantification of acute ischemic stroke blood clots 

      Fitzgerald, Seán; Wang, Shunli; Dai, Daying; Murphree Jr, Dennis H.; Pandit, Abhay; Douglas, Andrew; Rizvi, Asim; Kadirvel, Ramanathan; Gilvarry, Michael; McCarthy, Ray; Stritt, Manuel; Gounis, Matthew J.; Brinjikji, Waleed; Kallmes, David F.; Doyle, Karen M. (Public Library of Science, 2019-12-05)
      Our aim was to assess the utility of a novel machine learning software (Orbit Image Analysis) in the histological quantification of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) clots. We analyzed 50 AIS blood clots retrieved using mechanical ...
    • Platelet-rich emboli are associated with von Willebrand factor levels and have poorer revascularization outcomes 

      Douglas, Andrew; Fitzgerald, Seán; Mereuta, Oana Madalina; Rossi, Rosanna; O'Leary, Sean; Pandit, Abhay; McCarthy, Ray; Gilvarry, Michael; Holmegaard, Lukas; Abrahamsson, Margareta; Jerndal, Mikael; Dehlfors, Niclas; Brennan, Paul; Power, Sarah; O'Hare, Alan; Griffin, Emma; Kallmes, David F.; Brinjikji, Waleed; Szikora, István; Tatlisumak, Turgut; Rentzos, Alexandros; Thornton, John; Doyle, Karen M. (BMJ Publishing Group, 2019-11-04)
      Background and aims Platelets and von Willebrand factor (vWF) are key factors in thrombosis and thus are likely key components of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) emboli. We aimed to characterize platelet and vWF levels in AIS ...
