Title:
Lenticulostriate infarctions after successful mechanical thrombectomy in middle cerebral artery occlusion. 
Abstract:
In stroke due to middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion, collaterals may sustain tissue in the peripheral MCA territory, extending the time window for recanalizing therapies. However, MCA occlusions often block some or all of the'lenticulostriate' (LS) arteries originating from the M1 segment, eliminating blood flow to dependent territories in the striatum, which have no collateral supply. This study examines whether mechanical thrombectomy (MTE) can avert imminent striatal infarction in patient...    »
