Clinical Outcome Predicted by Collaterals Depends on Technical Success of Mechanical Thrombectomy in Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion

This study aimed to analyze the effects of technical outcome of mechanical thrombectomy (MTE) on the associations between collateral status, assessed with pretreatment computed tomography angiography (CTA), and neurological and functional outcome, as well as associations between collaterals and metabolic risk factors (arterial hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, overweight).
