  • Bold type indicates statistical significance.

  • *p Value for the difference between the Solumbra group and the ADAPT group using either the Student t test or Fisher exact test.

  • ADAPT, A Direct Aspiration first-Pass Thrombectomy; ASPECTS, Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score; ICA, internal carotid artery; IV-tPA, intravenous tissue plasminogen activator; LKW, last known well; MCA, middle cerebral artery; N, number of patients; NCCT, non-contrast CT; NIHSS, National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale.
